July 19, 2022 - How to Advocate Effectively; And Get Knowledgeable About Climate Change, Voting Reform, and More

When I worked on the Hill as an intern, a chunk of my day was spent sorting emails from constituents. More often than not, most of the emails were part of an advocacy campaign, with an interest group asking its members to reach out.

According to the Congressional Management Foundation, these campaigns now represent 70-90% of all emails that members of Congress receive.

July 12, 2022 - Looking for Leadership: Jan 6th; Responsive Reps; Renew America Cohort 

I still remember being completely and utterly shocked that a mob had managed to take control of the Chambers of Congress – even temporarily.

June 28, 2022 - Let’s Talk About What It Means to be Free

Years ago, I watched a TV show that followed the life of a girl whose immigrant family had come to America when she was very young. Their native country was notable for having very few freedoms. At one point during the episode, the girl was asking her parents for more flexibility but then said, “I agree, though, that Americans have too much freedom.”

June 7, 2022 - Let’s Be Honest With Ourselves About Spending

Accounting is complicated. I briefly took Accounting for Lawyers in law school, and I switched to a different class within the week. It feels like it should be as simple as income vs. expenses, but it’s very much not. And it can get vastly more complicated in a hurry.
