Who we are
We’re writers, teachers, and American citizens.
What we’re about
Most of our opinions are liberal, but this site’s goal isn’t just to persuade more people to vote for Democrats. It’s to persuade more people to vote. We think the best way to convince political leaders to respond is for them to see that people care.
When we don’t vote, problems go unsolved or get worse, people who need help don’t get it, and the wrong people get put in charge. We also believe that when we do vote, we can fix stuff and improve lives.
Only 58% of eligible voters voted in 2016, and only 36% did in 2014. That’s bad. It means hundreds of millions of people could have had a say in who was in charge and what they should work on–but didn’t. Some thought it was pointless. Some didn’t like any of the candidates. Some didn’t see how the government’s decisions could affect their lives.
We want to change that.
