4 ways to make a difference, now.
Civic involvement is the best way to make a difference. Use your voice. Here's how:
Most people only vote in national elections, but local elections is where you're more likely to be heard, where your vote can make a bigger difference. To see what's happening in your locality, check the agendas of any city council meeting through your email - it's that easy.
Read Diverse Sources
An educated citizenry is the bedrock of democracy. But what does it mean to educate yourself? Scrutinize your sources, their biases, and their credibility. The best way to avoid becoming inculcated with the biases of your news sources, is to diversify where you get your news. If you lean to the left, read the Drudge Report, or listen to Ben Shapiro. If you lean to the right, read The New Yorker, or listen to Pod Save America. However, listening to commentary is not educating yourself; it's allowing others to educate you. Be sure to watch C-SPAN more than 24/7 News Outlets, and read actual bills over opinion pieces of that legislation.
