America Forward: Statement Applauding Introduction of the Social Impact Partnership Act

Posted by Sarah Duarte on Apr 28, 2015 4:00:45 PM


"Members of the America Forward Coalition applaud Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) on the introduction of the bipartisan Social Impact Partnership Act. The bill would create a federal fund to promote a variety of pay for success approaches and also test social innovation financing of pay for success strategies. In times of greater demand for social services and tighter budgets, we must work together to direct government resources to programs that work and that measurably improve people’s lives. This bipartisan bill has the potential to support high-impact service providers, drive new resources to effective social programs, and incentivize more efficient use of government resources to reward what works. The America Forward Coalition looks forward to continuing our work with Senators Hatch and Bennet to help advance this critical legislation through the process."

America Forward: Statement Applauding Introduction of the Evidence-Based Policymaking Commission Act

Posted by Sarah Duarte on Apr 17, 2015 2:07:52 PM


"Members of the America Forward Coalition applaud Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) on the introduction of the bipartisan, bicameral Evidence-Based Policymaking Commission Act of 2015. The bill would create a commission to develop practices and processes for ensuring the use of evidence and outcomes in the development of policies and in the funding of interventions at the federal level. In times of greater demand for human services and tighter budgets, we must work together to direct government resources to programs that work and that measurably improve people’s lives. Our Coalition of organizations, implementing effective programs across the country, commend Representative Ryan and Senator Murray’s tireless efforts to focus on results through innovation, evaluation, and common frameworks for evidence.  The America Forward Coalition looks forward to continuing our work with Representative Ryan and Senator Murray to help advance this critical legislation through the process."

RISE: Defining A New Collective Destination
What does it mean to be on a path to opportunity in the U.S. today? Do the systems, strategies, and organizations we're creating, with the intention of increasing access to opportunity, express sufficiently acute insights into what it will really take to succeed? What are we learning about the ways that race and class wind through these pathways from people who have cracked the code themselves? How is technology closing - and widening - gaps? And how do each of us fit into this story?
