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 21, 2022 - Professional Development for Educators and Their Students

America has asked a lot of its educators since COVID-19 hit, and yet most have shown great resilience and remained in the classroom. Bridge Alliance members are determined to reward that resiliency with resources and community. Last month we told you about Civic Spirit’s Educators Cohort for faith-based educators, as well as Public Agenda’s program to help teachers find their voice in the media.

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.

May 17, 2022 - Feeling Humbled by America’s Unique Diversity

We live in a very, very diverse nation. To call America a melting pot (or mixed salad!) doesn’t even do it justice, in my opinion, because our diversity extends far beyond our cultures. We have all types of climates, geographies, etc. Everything from “amber waves of grain” to “purple mountain majesties.”

May 10, 2022 - Democracy Would Be Easy If Everyone Agreed With Me 

The subject line of this email is obviously tongue-in-cheek, but it gets at an important point when we talk about “bipartisanship” and “compromise” in lawmaking.

May 3, 2022 - Taking An All-Of-The-Above Approach to the Economy

Our economy is not working for millions of Americans. Regardless of the cause, Americans are hurting financially. And this pain is being inflamed by inflation, which is stretching tight household budgets even thinner (it’s also making America even more polarized as everybody tries to figure out who to blame).
