Goodnewspaper: The Politics Edition
This issue of the Goodnewspaper is called The Politics Edition — but if we had the space we would have called it The Issue That Reminds Us That a Great Way To Do Good is To Be Involved in Our Communities via Civics, Politics, and Advocacy.
This issue isn’t inherently about any of the candidates running for office this year. (You won’t see B*den or Tr*mp’s names anywhere in this issue. You see enough of them everywhere else.) Instead of diving into individual politics, this issue dives into the civic duties we can play in October and November by voting or helping others vote — and the civic duties we can play in December onward by staying involved (in non-overwhelming ways).
The world would be a better place if Goodnewspaper readers were shaping our politics (from local to global leadership) and this Goodnewspaper is filled with inspiration and ideas on how that could become the reality.
Inside this issue you’ll read about:
- How the demographics are changing in Congress to better represent what America actually looks like
- The lessons we can learn from democratic countries around the world
- How each of us can support voting rights for all
- Why “ranked choice voting” might just be the solution to our political woes
- And a lesson from Sarah and Beth from Pantsuit Politics about how we can discuss politics with people with whom we disagree
