Your heart is a muscle
We know that just like working out, civic activism can feel intimidating at first. It seems like everyone else knows how to use the machines, and you're just not sure that activism is your kind of place. We're here to help you get started with emails a few times a week that have 5-minute, 10-minute, and 30-minute activism "workouts" that will help you (and America) get in shape.
Our mission is to help those feeling overwhelmed, daunted, and disheartened to engage in meaningful civic activism. We know that activism can be hard, but it gets easier with practice, and we're here to help you get started.
The revolution will be crowdsourced.
We are sharing articles, guides and other resources here for you to take along with you on your journey. Feel free to print them out and bring them with you to events and demonstrations.
