A project by Acumen America

Welcome.

Where to Next examines the collective and systemic problems in America and puts a spotlight on the brightest individuals and companies working to solve them. We are building an engaged community and elevating voices that are each asking the same question: Where to next?

We can’t go back to the old way of doing things, so we are digging deep and discussing some of our country’s thorniest issues with an eye to highlighting very real and scalable solutions.

“Whatever it is, coronavirus has made the mighty kneel and brought the world to a halt like nothing else could. Our minds are still racing back and forth, longing for a return to “normality”, trying to stitch our future to our past and refusing to acknowledge the rupture. But the rupture exists. And in the midst of this terrible despair, it offers us a chance to rethink the doomsday machine we have built for ourselves. Nothing could be worse than a return to normality. Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it. ” Arundhati Roy
