I started this website to serve as a resource for people who want to be more active in politics.--whether it's running for office or community organizing--but feel like they don't know enough about how the government works. If you're like me, you learned about the government in high school and only remember small details like the date of JFK's assassination (Nov. 23, 1964) and the three branches of government (Executive, Judicial and...what's the third one? Oh yeah, Legislative).
I've wanted to go back and learn more, but the information is so fragmented and detailed... It's hard to get the basics all in one place. I've longed for a resource that could break it down for me simply and in a way I could actually remember. Given the political climate, I'm feeling a greater sense of urgency to educate myself. So I figured, why not create that resource for myself and others? As I teach myself, I can post my findings and make that information available to you.
Now let's talk about you, the reader. This information is specifically geared towards uplifting women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and more. Basically, if you are a member of a marginalized or under-represented community in America, the information on this website is for you. I want this to be a resource for us to get empowered and have our voices heard.
We need better representation and it's becoming increasingly clear that the only way to get it in government is by doing it ourselves. By running for office, helping others get elected, and bringing a spotlight to important causes we can make the government reflect the true diverse, multicultural America we all know it can be.
