WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) today announced the launch of its new Evidence-Based Policy and Innovation division. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the new division will develop and support initiatives that encourage policy leaders to consider reliable evidence and data as the primary factor in their decisions. Kathy Stack and Jon Baron, two of the nation’s most prominent advocates for evidence-based policymaking, will lead the division.
