I know it’s scary times, so I have a suggestion: Read this week’s Checklist in reverse.
One of the ways to sustain activism is balance. If you’re like me, I’m good at worst case scenarios, connecting the dots, and concluding that it’s all awful. There’s no denying that the stakes are high this coming election for democracy, civil rights, and a green future. Taking action is essential.
However, in addition to that reality are stories of people doing good. People showing courage together. People using their power in productive ways. And that’s what we highlight in every issue of Checklist along with actions. This good news provides balance to all our valid concerns. They show evidence that our collective efforts are working and encourage us to continue.
So, if you’re feeling stressed, find balance in the successes happening right now, today. Click here, scroll to the bottom, and start with the good news.
