It is our responsibility to vote. It is our responsibility to let our elected officials know our expectations. If you don't vote, do you have the right to complain about the job performance of your elected local, state, and national officials?
PEOPLE's Editorial Director Jess Cagle recently used his Editor's Letter to address gun violence in America. He plea was for progress on this epidemic. PEOPLE also provided contact information for all 535 voting members of the House and Senate. Well done.
As editorial director at People, Jess could reach a large audience with the magazine. Think about what tools you have and the audience you can reach to bring awareness to issues that matter to you. How can you use them to take a STAND FOR PROGRESS?
