How to put your energy towards making change this week.
Even if you follow the news as much as your mental health can handle, it can be hard to know what issues to focus on. A quick tour of causes you can support this week can help you cut through the noise and make the change you want to see.
Showing up for the issues and people you care about can take a lot of different forms. With the 2020 election coming up, you might want to make your next Zoom icebreaker about creating a game plan for voting on time. You may also consider donating to help victims of the California wildfires, or volunteering for Bookshare to increase access to books. If you want to take some quick actions on your phone, you can email your senators to fund the USPS, or sign a petition for #JusticeForJacobBlake. Below, you can find a petition to sign, an email to write, a conversation to have, and places to donate or volunteer if you want to make a difference.
