Growing Hope is MSNBC's invitation to Americans to share their hopes for change around issues that impact our communities.

We invite you to join the Growing Hope conversation. Select an issue you care about and tell us your hopes for change regarding that issue. By sharing, you can inspire a conversation that motivates people to make a difference in their community.

This is just the beginning. Help us plant the seeds of hope. Change begins with you.

I wish more opportunities were available that enable people to start their own businesses.
