Find a Job in the Movement at DemocracyJobs.org. One of the great innovations of the 21st century is harnessing the power of the internet to connect people instantly no matter their location. With one click, I can have a face-to-face conversation with colleagues from coast-to-coast. Living Room Conversations is taking full advantage of this technology with its slate of digital conversations. If you’ve never participated in one of these conversations, I strongly encourage you to give them a try. Here are a couple upcoming conversations (You can find all their offerings at www.livingroomconversations.org/events/):
If you’re more of an introvert (or just want to engage with the movement on your own time), don’t worry! We have options for you, too. You can read Steve McIntosh’s (Institute for Cultural Evolution) new book “Developmental Politics,” where he offers cultural solutions to fix America’s hyper-polarization (here’s a 6 minute video explainer of the concept of developmental politics).
You can also dive into the issue of money in politics with this informative article by the National Institute on Money in Politics on the timing of political donations. Or you can learn about Issue One’s new research project “Coordination Watch.” Issue One will be watching for coordination between candidates and Super PACs and bringing attention to these efforts to evade anti-corruption laws.
Finally, the Renew Democracy Initiative (RDI) would like to invite you to their Heroes of Democracy Gala on May 7th in New York City, where they will honor three women who have been fighting tirelessly for democracy. Tickets can be purchased here.
As always, thank you for your support.
