I love this forum. We talk about a lot of things. But one thread I don’t see is about how to actually get more involved beyond arguing on the internet, or about how politics actually happens.
First, what the hell is political hobbyism? Short answer: what we do here. Long answer:
So how do we move beyond arguing about policy and into the meat of getting things done? I have a ton of resources and contacts from the past year, and a year’s worth of experience founding and leading a grassroots volunteer group. Mine was for a campaign, but a lot of the principles are the same whether it be for a candidate or for a cause.
Also, if anyone wants to chat about how politics actually works, or if you’re looking for book suggestions, or podcasts, or whatever, this is the place.
