It can feel really lonely trying to stay informed

Ever feel like you’re the only one who who’s tired of the endless debate and division? Do you avoid the news because – Ugh! – the endless bickering?! You are a smart, civic-minded person, and you want to know what’s going on, but sometimes it’s just so exhausting trying to filter through the media muck. It’s easier to just let your more informed friends and family tell you when something big is going on in the world.

you're busy

Life can be really overwhelming. Who has time to sift through the headlines for the truth? Especially when different media sources are contradicting each other.

You're smart

You don’t need the media to do your thinking for you. You just need accurate information so you can draw your own conclusions. 

you're anxious

Let’s face it. The world can be a scary place. You want to be informed, but sometimes it’s all just too much. Is it even possible to stay informed without going out of your mind? (Yes! It totally is!)

you care

You genuinely care about what’s going on in the world, and it’s important for you to be engaged. You want to spend your limited time and energy focused on healing, progress, and positive change.
