Ben leads a group of social innovators who are committed to creating solutions that can bring new approaches to historical problems. Through our partners, we identify inner-city communities that are ripe to experience change through new ideas. We dispatch our research team, determine viability, and develop a responsive strategy.  We initiate our work through EMPOWER campaigns that bring ideas, training and coaching to existing people, programs, and the market.

We are currently supporting violence reduction implementation in Oakland and the larger training around the intersection of race and faith with East Bay religious circles.

An example of an innovative solution is the Welcome Home Platform, to be implemented next year using a technology platform to reduce recidivism.
