GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Jan. 24, 2013)—The University of Pennsylvania’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program ranked the Acton Institute among the top social policy and top U.S. think tanks with the release of its 2012 Global Go-To Think Tanks Report. In addition, Acton was cited for having one of the best advocacy campaigns.
The Acton Institute was ranked 13th in the “Top 50 Social Policy Think Tanks” (down one place from 2011), 34th in the “Top 55 Think Tanks in the United States” (up from 39th in 2011), and 19th
out of 75 under “Best Advocacy Campaign,” a new category in 2012. The
advocacy ranking includes organizations such as Amnesty International
(#1), the Heritage Foundation (#15), and the One Campaign (#20). The
Acton Institute was singled out for its work on religious liberty and
economic freedom, including the PovertyCure initiative. Endorsed by more
than 180 partners, PovertyCure released a documentary-style,
six-episode DVD series in December that discusses aid, enterprise and
asks the question, “How do people create prosperity for their families
and their communities?”
