Facts matter, perhaps now more than ever. At Urban, we have the opportunity to ensure policies and decisions that affect us all are driven by data and evidence. It’s a privilege to work closely with Urban’s researchers to elevate their work in ways that will make a difference.

Archana Pyati manages communications and external outreach for the Urban Institute’s From Safety Net to Solid Ground initiative, which examines changes to federal and state social safety net policy and potential impacts on families. Previously, she held positions at the Urban Land Institute and Suited for Change. She also has extensive experience as a freelance writer and journalist, working in both daily newspapers and magazines. Pyati earned her bachelor’s degree summa cum laude in English from the Ohio State University and her master’s degree in journalism from the University of California, Berkeley.
