FOOD 4 THOUGHT - The more I work on Hero Ring, the more fascinated I am by social justice through entrepreneurship. Yes, they have traditionally work exclusively. But they can also work together. We just haven't been exposed to that thought yet.
If activist are solving social problems and business folks are solving market/economic problems, why not merge the two and solve both - redefining what both can look like?
Socially conscious entrepreneurs and economically conscious activists are what we need to address social, economic, and political disparity within struggling and oppressed groups. Anyone lacking stability in any one of the 3 affects the stability of the other 2.
If you're trying to create social or economic opportunity, it's important to remember that the people and the community come first!
What activist, entrepreneur, or organization (business or not) do you think has been a GOOD or BAD contributor to socioeconomic issues?
