Our commitment to what works
The Opportunity Lives view is that too many people today spend their time pointing out problems and talking about what’s wrong with our world.
We certainly believe there are many things in our communities and in government that need to be changed. But we’re not content to just feature shortcomings.
Our goal is that you come away from this platform with a better understanding of the universe of ideas and solutions, answers to your questions about what works and why, and clarity on who it is that’s working on solving these problems in our neighborhoods and chambers of government.
Too often, government policies — and the communities and families they impact — are talked about in detached or abstract terms.
Opportunity Lives understands that policies are ultimately about people. And so we’ve put together a new way to talk about issues and ideas — we call them Storyboards.
In each storyboard, like this one on K-12 education, we feature not only problems and solutions, but leaders who are out in communities and working to reform government policies. Each storyboard also contains a collections of stories containing real life examples of people who have overcome challenges, and how the policy solutions floated within governments work in real life.
We’ve not just in the business of highlighting ideas — we tell stories too.
