The Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, in coordination with the Office of Public Engagement, invited DCG President Landis Graden to the White House on July 11 to participate in a forum discussing the importance of faith-based social innovators in addressing social issues.
The event will feature briefings, panels, and small-and-large group discussions on how faith-based organizations are creating innovative models and entrepreneurial ventures to make a positive impact on our economy and our society, often while serving the country’s most vulnerable communities.
This event is part of a new series of conversations being hosted at the White House in 2012 to explore the topic of social innovation. Per the invitation, “Starting with this look at the pioneering accomplishments of our faith-based communities, the White House seeks to learn from local innovators and social entrepreneurs who are expanding opportunity and strengthening communities across the country.”
