Weekly Wrap-Up

That’s the dissenter’s hope: that they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow.
— Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I'll admit, this week's been a tough one for me—from what Brett Kavanaugh's nomination means for the rights of women, workers, and LGBTQ folks to the continued onslaught of anti-immigration policies, which affect many of our friends and colleagues. The stakes are undoubtedly high, which is why we're so excited about our newly launched campaign to Get Out the Vote for the 2018 Midterm Elections. I just got off our first webinar, featuring Virginia House Delegate Hala Ayala, the Union of Concerned Scientists' Melissa Varga, volcanologist and former Congressional candidate Jess Phoenix, and Science Debate Executive Director Sheril Kirshenbaum. Regardless of whether you're based around the world, the message I took away from the webinar is the same: if we can mobilize around our values and build a collective story to inspire others to action, change will come.
