Have you ever wanted to affect change at either the local or federal level but didn’t know where to begin? Were you curious how you could start your own grassroots organization and keep it thriving? Have you pondered what it means to be an engaged American citizen in your community? This is your survival guide and primer course all rolled into one. On this podcast we will offer practical advice on how to start your political activism, how to stay engaged, how to avoid burn out and rally others to your cause. In short, how to be the engaged and informed citizen you know you can be.
We will explore how to defend your ideals, no matter what side of the political aisle you stand on, and how to engage your fellow citizens to make sure that your voices are heard in our government. Social media is a powerful tool but now more than ever, citizens need to become informed and active to insure that we have a government for the people and by the people.
Debbie & Crystal, co-creators and co-producers of DC Podcats, will interview guests that represent non profits, grassroots activist groups, and normal people like you and me just trying to make a difference. We will give multiple ways to help the groups we spotlight so that no matter how much time you have, or don't have, you will always feel there is a way for you to participate with the causes that matter most to you!
