This fall, The Washington Post will launch “America Answers,” an event series that highlights how big, national problems are being solved on the local level.

Just as San Luis Obispo, California led the charge to ban smoking in all public buildings, including restaurants and bars, nearly 15 years ago, many innovative solutions that take hold nationally start locally. America Answers will explore how different communities are leading the way on big problems, and put a spotlight on how their ideas could have broader applications.
