Our 2015-2016 Annual Report is being published at a time of widespread uncertainty and anxiety, but the message we want to send to our community is about action. All of us - from social entrepreneurs to philanthropists, policy advocates, researchers, private sector leaders, and community partners - have a critical role and responsibility to push even harder to maintain the social problem solving momentum we have created together. As we do so, we have to also widen our frame of reference about our mission of breaking down barriers to opportunity in America.
