Oly Talks: civics matters
When John Kennedy Jr. started his magazine, George, he said that he did it because politics is too important to be left to politicians. Nearly 20 years after his death, that message resonates more than ever.
Civics matters. It matters in more ways than we usually think about. Especially when everyone gets on board for local kids, to ease the burdens of homelessness, and to fight injustice. These are three topics we jump into right off the bat, but we'd also like to hear from you.
