Last night I had the privilege of watching David Byrne of Talking Heads, one of my favorite artists of any medium, perform live. As part of his American Utopia tour, he has teamed up with Headcount, a nonpartisan organization which seeks to increase voter registration. Their volunteers stage registration drives at music concerts, among other work. In Byrne’s own words, “If you want to have a future, you’ve got to participate.”
He has also started a project called Reasons To Be Cheerful, which highlights positive and encouraging stories from across the world and serves as a reminder that despite the current state of affairs, good changes can still happen.
I will include links in the comments.
