About Opportunity Nation
Opportunity Nation is a bipartisan, national campaign comprised of more than 350 cross-sector organizations working together to expand economic mobility and close the opportunity gap in America.

Opportunity Nation envisions the United States as a nation where everyone – regardless of where they were born – has equal access to opportunity, economic mobility, and success at all stages of life.

Mission

Through the efforts of our Coalition and findings from the Opportunity Index, Opportunity Nation works to combat inequality and ensure that people of all ages can thrive and succeed. We take a data-driven, bipartisan, cross-sector approach to ensuring America’s young people have a strong foundation towards future success.

Approach

Measure Access to Opportunity
Our annual Opportunity Index measures economic, educational and civic factors that foster economic mobility at both the county and state levels.

Advance Bipartisan Legislation
We promote common-sense, bipartisan approaches to increase access to education, tackle the skills gap and expand opportunity for young adults.

Convene Cross-Sector Groups
We convene diverse groups through the National Opportunity Summit, Opportunity Index updates, policy briefings, and other events across the country that lead to innovative collaborations and partnerships.
