The November 2016 Monthly Newsletter for the Presidential Precinct.

    THE EXCHANGE  |  NOVEMBER EDITION

Empowering the Next Generation of Global Leaders
#GivingTuesday, organized only five years ago, has established the Tuesday after Thanksgiving as the first day of end-of-the-year giving for charities. Last year alone, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate.

We hope that you will join this movement to increase philanthropy and volunteerism and consider a gift to the Presidential Precinct. Each contribution makes a significant impact and enables us to invest in the next generation of global leaders. As you’ll see in this edition of
The Exchange, the rising leaders we serve at the Precinct are continuing to play crucial roles in creating a more peaceful and prosperous world.

WHAT WE’RE READING
James B. Murray, Jr. the Precinct’s founder, shares an article that he hopes may be interesting or thought provoking for the Precinct’s constituencies. In particular we hope to attract the attention of young leaders from around the world who may look to the Precinct for an unbiased, non-judgmental window into current thinking on democracy, the rule of law and best political practices. We will post each article on the Precinct Network in the spirit of stimulating dialogue and critical thinking. 

The Risky Politics of Progress

Global problems such as terrorism, inequality and political dysfunction aren’t easy to solve, but that doesn’t mean we should stop trying. Journalist Jonathan Tepperman has traveled the world to ask global leaders how they’re tackling hard problems and unearthed surprisingly hopeful stories that he’s distilled into three tools for problem-solving.
