I have become much more political in the last year than I ever have before. Like many, completely dumbstruck by the outcome of the election, I have been struggling with how best to channel my frustration and anger.
I decided to do something about it, and channel this energy into something I do think will have a positive impact on our democracy.
Arguing on Twitter, Facebook, etc is unlikely to affect real change (shocker). Our networks are largely echo chambers and it is difficult to influence those outside your network. Retweets won’t save us.
