Connections: Panicked? Well, What Are You Doing About The Election?


If you're feeling some panic about the presidential election, a question: are you going to stay on the couch, curled up in the fetal position, for the next six weeks? Or might you go to work, volunteering? Would you go to a swing state for a weekend? Would you phone bank?

No matter whom you support, we're exploring ways in which you - yes, you! - can get involved to help impact the election. Beyond, you know, asking the universe to intervene. Our guests:

  • Dick Hastings, Republican organizer and volunteer
  • Carol McManus, Republican organizer and volunteer
  • Larry Knox, political and community engagement coordinator with SEIU
  • Michelle Daniels, Democratic volunteer
