Happy 4th of July!

In honor of the July 4th holiday, I wanted to share a reminder from Jake Brewer:

I pledge to be an active American:
to show up for others,
to govern myself,
to help govern my community.
I recommit myself to my country's
creed to cherish liberty
as a responsibility.

I pledge to serve
and to push my country.
When right, to be kept right;
When wrong, to be set right.
Wherever my ancestors and I were
born, I claim America
and I pledge to live like a citizen.

 

Thank you for being a champion of our democracy. -Lori

Cohort IV is in the books!

Another fantastic Campfire! 

This weekend, we turned a group of strangers into the latest CtK.Campfire alums. We took some powerful deep dives and the spectrum exercises challenged us to consider the dimensionality of the issues currently facing our democracy. We left with a renewed sense of purpose and can't wait to introduce our newest alums to the rest of the Campfire. 

Together, we will make a difference for our democracy. 

Onward!

The Hill: "'Roseanne' reboot to depict a family 'divided by politics' under Trump"

A reboot of the '90's television show "Roseanne" takes on the complexities of the contemporary American family divided by politics.

Roseanne Barr, who plays a Trump supporter, believes this polarization amidst families and the animosity that stems from political identity should be addressed because it "is not American."
