Issue 34: Bigot in Chief
Love Trumps Hate. In recent days, the nation’s been focused on the seemingly endless string of devastating natural disasters and last week’s gut-wrenching mass shooting in Las Vegas. Disturbingly—but not surprisingly—the Trump administration has leveraged the moment to quietly unfurl a new set of discriminatory and bigoted actions against the LGBTQ community. This week we’re looking at 45’s latest steps to dismantle LGBTQ protections and what we can do to stop him in his bigoted tracks.
Issue 33: Can you do the Con-Con?
Unconventional. A constitutional convention (aka a "Con-Con") is 1 of only 2 ways to amend the New York State constitution. Every 20 years, NYers have the chance to vote on whether or not to hold a constitutional convention, and 2017 is one of those years. So Con-Cons are especially relevant right now for New Yorkers, and this week we’re explaining what they are, how they work, who’s for them, and who’s against them. Brace yourself: there’s not a clear Dem–GOP line.
Issue 32: Somebody has to pay
Care-less. Today we’re talking about single-payer healthcare—what it is, who loves it (spoiler: Bernie), and why we’re one of the only countries in the developed world that treats healthcare like a privilege for the wealthy. Yes—France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK all have universal healthcare. So do 26 more countries.
