Asking yourself these questions will help you hone in on your REAL views.
1. What’s the #1 thing that keeps me up at night?
It’s easy to get tied up with issues that don’t matter to you that much and lose sight of those that do. By asking yourself what will make the biggest impact on you, your family, and your community, it’s easier to see where you should focus your energy.
2. Am I for something or against something?
Sometimes you support a cause or candidate even though you don’t support every single policy — and that’s OK. Not every choice is crystal clear, and it’s up to us to choose the causes and movements that will best represent us.
3. What happens if I don’t meet my goal right away?
Civic responsibility doesn’t begin and end on voting days and sit quietly on the sidelines between elections. From volunteering for causes and policies to running for local office — yes, you! — there are many ways to make an impact all year long.
