The Invisible Dream

Creating a New Conversation About the American Dream


What is the American Dream? What do we need to help more Americans achieve it? Does the way we talk and think about the Dream hinder our ability to achieve it? The Invisible Dream, a partnership between Public Agenda and the GALEWiLL Center for Opportunity & Progress, aims to facilitate a more nuanced national dialogue around the American Dream and injects the public's voice into the conversation about this important topic. Through focus groups around the country and a national survey of over 2000 respondents, we listened to what Americans had to say about the Dream.
