Good News Edition – June 2, 2018


Many of our members are representing at the Democratic convention today (thanks for being there, everyone!), and all of us are trying to catch our breath from yet another free-wheeling and somewhat perplexing week. We’re here to tell you to hang in there. Despite the many horrific things we’ve been made to bear witness to over the last seven days, there ARE good things happening out there.

We hope that this week’s collection of happy headlines gives you something to smile about and maybe inspires you about new ways to get involved and start creating some happy headlines of your own. No action is too small. Seriously.

Have a great weekend and week ahead!
