Social capital, alternative funding and concern for the triple bottom line are now moving beyond generalities and into specific targeted areas and communities. A new movement is harnessing the power and resources of Chicago’s African American LGBT community. They are aiming to create change through cutting-edge social enterprise initiatives – including sustainable city farms and medical marijuana – and relying on innovative legal and financial structures, including for-profit and non-profit stakeholders, investors and governments.
