Representative Democracy

Earlier this week, we had planned for this week’s blog post to showcase another nook/cranny of Cornelia Funke’s Writing Barn. But the world’s been even more tumultuous than we had hoped it would be, and we feel compelled to direct our attention toward the week’s current events.

After Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony in the hearing yesterday, and the vote to push a problematic judicial nomination to the floor of the Senate today, we thought it might be useful to take a moment to talk about the ways we can all participate in representative democracy.
