I am a member of the Bold New Democracy political club. http://www.boldnewdemocracy.club
The Communication & Values team, of which I’m a member publishes a series of essays on issues of interest to protecting and sustaining our Democracy. I see that your essay contest is just starting, and I would love to speak with you about inviting some of the students share their work with us on our zoom meetings after the contest is finished or on our webpage. The topic chosen for this year is so relevant and important. I hope you will contact me via email, and check out the webpage to see if our work is compatible.
