Who We Are
America’s Edge is a membership organization of business leaders under the umbrella of non-profit, Council for a Strong America. Our business leader members work to strengthen businesses and the economy through proven investments in children. We take a critical look at the knowledge, skills and abilities businesses need their employees to have in the 21st century, including the ability to be communicators, collaborators, and critical thinkers. We educate policy-makers and the public about high-quality investments that protect America’s competitive edge in a global market place, build a foundation for lasting economic security, and help our nation’s children.
Proven Investments for Business:
We support proven programs that pay big dividends to businesses both today and tomorrow, strengthen communities, and get children school- and work- ready so businesses have a future workforce with the knowledge, skills and abilities we need. We know that among the most effective ways to increase sales of local goods and services and create jobs is through investments in kids.
How We Make a Difference:
America’s Edge members educate policy-makers and the public by:
- Communicating with elected officials through letters, calls and personal meetings.
- Submitting opinion editorials and letters-to-the editor to local newspapers.
- Participating in press events when new research reports are released.
