True North Research

  • Virtual

True North Research is a research group focused on special interests that distort public policy and harm our democracy, our economy, and our planet. It is led by Lisa Graves, who previously served as a senior advisor in all three branches of federal government. She launched the award-winning http://ALECexposed.org investigation, and she has spearheaded breakthrough research into Charles Koch’s networks, and more.

Our focus is on front groups, corporations, and people underwriting a reactionary agenda that undermines our nation’s commitment to core principles:

  • that all people are created equal,
  • that our Constitution is premised on the promise that our republic—our government in our democracy—will promote the general welfare of We, the people, and
  • that our nation should be a bright beacon for liberty, equality, and ingenuity in the world.
