Dear Mr. President: Congratulations on a hard-fought race for your second term as President. With your recent victory, I hope you will use your power — as a legislator, but also a bully pulpit — to broaden your agenda and take on some of our society’s most pressing issues.
And, you have one thing that no other President has ever had — an army of two generations of social entrepreneurswho are fighting every day to change the landscape of education, health care, and workforce development.
The United States was founded on the free enterprise system and now social changemakers are using these principles to solve problems. As Bill Drayton suggests, “Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry.” The good news is that the social entrepreneurship movement is politically agnostic. Democrats connect with the cause because we are finding solutions to help the neediest among us, and Republicans appreciate that we are focused on social and financial return-on-investment.Featured Posts, Updates and tagged featured.
