Personal Choices. Every day, Americans are making choices in their personal and professional lives that affect the problems we are trying to solve. Some are made by famous politicians or chief executives whom you already know, but scores of others make their choices mostly below the media radar. The lack of a spotlight does not diminish their bold choices that in big ways and small support American values of freedom, diversity, and innovation while helping to make our communities, our country, and our world a better place to live for everyone.

Civic Superpowers. The American Leader is proud to showcase these leaders and the choices they’ve made. Together, their stories present a glimpse of the breadth of action and impacts that a diverse range of courageous and independent-minded people can take to solve our common problems. We like to think that they are exercising their civic superpowers. We hope they may inspire you to discover and exercise your civic superpowers, be it at home, on the job, or maybe on a bigger, bolder stage.
