"A bucket of ideas, looking for a spigot."
I'm a High School Science teacher in Northern California. I spend my days trying to figure out ways to build science literacy and critical thinking skills. Actually, I spend a lot of my nights doing that too.
Other habits are musing, joking, and triathlon.
(Update of Community Clerks) Underserved communities already have people who know and work with them, and have developed personal relationships. We should train these people to do voter registration, outreach, and education.
This is fantastic! I'd love to see this as an annual celebration of neighborhood, taking place even when there is no election being held. In the US we have a holiday right around election time, Veteran's Day. How great would it be if every year, people took a day off to celebrate their communities, and then every other year took ownership by voting?!
Most community events in the US are usually driving affairs, I live in California, the state fair is about 2 hours away, by car. Even the county fair is about 45 mins away by car. The most accessible public space for most people is a school, which is usually walkable, unless people live in a very rural area.
