America Forward’s Policy Solutions For The Next President
All around the country, communities and social innovators are finding better ways to solve new — and old —problems. While the federal government ought to be lifting up these successful efforts, in too many cases government is getting in the way by creating barriers and red tape, using cumbersome policy tools that stifle innovation, and investing in programs that do not work. Inertia, political divisiveness, and overemphasis on compliance have frozen in place ineffective and inefficient systems designed decades ago.
These solutions will allow the next President and other policy leaders to restore America to the nation of opportunity
We need to activate America’s problem solvers — the inventors, the entrepreneurs, the organizations that get things done in their communities, the people who want to make a difference, the businesses that provide jobs and are willing to work with communities. Social innovators in the America Forward Coalition are solving America’s biggest problems in communities across the country every day.
Moving America Forward is a briefing book that grew out of the experiences of America’s most effective social innovators. Their insights shaped the transformational ideas presented in Moving America Forward and offer a wealth of opportunities for policymakers to scale local results into national impact.
Together the America Forward Coalition, candidates, and policymakers at all levels of government can make our nation, once again, the land of opportunity.
