    About The American Values Institute

    The American Values Institute is a national consortium of researchers and social justice advocates and is affiliated with the Institute for America’s Future. We have joined together under the shared conception that Americans are committed to the values of fairness and democracy - and we seek to counter the potential for implicit bias to undermine these ideals.

    AVI was formed in the heat of last year’s Presidential election when the issue of race appeared poised to play a crucial role in the election. The Right was running ads designed to appeal to racial prejudices and many white voters in different parts of the country were openly expressing racial anxiety. A year later, we are seeing a resurgence of these same tactics - confirming that this work continues to be crucially important despite the election of our first African American President.
