February 22, 2022 - What Do We Mean By “Facts” and the “Truth”?

Ben Shapiro famously said “Facts don’t care about your feelings.” I disagree with Mr. Shapiro…or at least what I think he’s implying. I think he’s saying that facts are concrete and static, and that if you look at the facts and keep an objective mind, you’ll eventually arrive at “the truth.”

February 15, 2022 - Honoring MLK by Empowering Others (MasterMind Cohorts)

MLK Day was January 18th. Today is February 15th, so in some ways this newsletter is about a month late. At the same time, MLK’s legacy is, in part, one of inclusion and empowerment, and the importance of those values doesn’t diminish after the 3rd Monday in January. That’s why, for today’s inspiration, we’re reaching back to America Promise’s MLK weekend interview with Renaldo Pearson (of RepresentUs).

February 8, 2022 - Maybe Let’s Pay the People Who Craft Our Laws?

You may have noticed that I’m feeling a bit feisty lately. I came out strongly in favor of free speech in the last two newsletters, and now I’m taking another stand – this time on Hill staffer pay. The men and women who write our laws should be paid well.

February 1, 2022 - Combating Extremism Legislatively and Socially

One of my favorite Supreme Court cases is National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie (1977). If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a landmark First Amendment rights case that essentially gave Nazis the right to march in the heavily Jewish town of Skokie, Illinois.

January 25, 2022 - Podcasts Worthy of Your Time While [Insert Routine]

Back in October, I mentioned how I love listening to podcasts on long drives. Of course, this isn’t the only time and place to listen to podcasts. You might, for example, listen to podcasts while cooking, cleaning, working out, gardening, or while doing one of a million other mundane tasks.

January 18, 2022 - We Can’t Act Like Campaigns; Attacking with EUTM, Part 2

During my undergrad years, I volunteered for a presidential campaign. We developed relationships with local activists in the name of registering voters and recruiting more volunteers, and my teammates and I became a fixture in the community. Once the election was over, however, everybody was gone, along with the campaign “infrastructure” we had created.

January 11, 2022 - Cleaning the 2021 Cupboard: Charts, Awards, and Reports!

How long can we say  “Happy New Year!” before it seems out of place? A few days? A week? I have been on two or three Zoom calls this year where people have started the call saying that we’re too far into 2022 to say it anymore.

January 4, 2022 - Attacking this New Year with EUTM; Opportunities to Get Involved

The University of Michigan’s football team is coached by Jim Harbaugh, who is known for being kind of an odd character. Love him or hate him, though, there’s no denying that he has some great quotes. For instance, back in 2015 he sent out a tweet that said “Attacking this day with Enthusiasm Unknown to Mankind.”

December 28, 2021 - Events to Get You in the Right Mindset for 2022

We are just 4 days away from 2022, which means we’re just 4 days away from a midterm election year. Because it will be “election season,” there will be a lot of temptation to go back to our usual “us vs. them” mentality where the main goal is to make sure that your “team” wins.

December 21, 2021 - Bridge Alliance Members Show Off Their Bread and Butter

My 8th grade English teacher always reminded us to “show, don’t tell” with our writing. What he meant is that writing is much more engaging when you describe a scene in detail, rather than just saying that something happened. Example: “I saw a bear in the woods and played dead. He sniffed me and then went away” versus describing my fear, the feeling of the bear’s nose, the sounds the forest made around me, etc.
