This Springboard is designed to help us open a new chapter in America’s quest for well-being and justice—to propel a movement that will match the high stakes of this legacy moment. The guiding framework used in this Springboard does not tell us what to do or how to act. It simply organizes the things that all people and places need in order to thrive.
All parts of this Springboard remain open to evolve through ongoing discussion and debate. No one person or organization is likely to endorse every idea in this document. That is as it should be. At this stage, we are surfacing a diverse range of ideas and proposals designed to prompt creative thinking and swift action. In the work ahead, coalitions will form and new ideas will emerge.
The Introduction includes the preface and Legacy Moment 2020. These sections frame the Springboard and its context; introduce thriving and the vital conditions for well-being and justice; and offer a set of strategic imperatives and guiding principles.
Changing Course presents 11 summaries focused on the vital conditions for well-being and justice, followed by separate summaries that examine place, faith, investment, and measurement. Deep Dives are paper-length explanations of ideas touched on in the Changing Course summaries.

Paths to Renewal builds on previous sections by presenting actionable ideas for national renewal and exploring three paths for renewing Civic Life, Economic Life, and Social, Emotional, and Spiritual Life. Each avenue braids the vital conditions into cohesive but still-evolving proposals for how our lives together could unfold.
