Listen to the How to Citizen Podcast where Baratunde Thurston reimagines the word “citizen” as a verb and reminds us how to wield our collective power. Learn new perspectives and practices from people working to improve society for the many. Join writer, activist, and comedian Baratunde on a journey beyond politics as usual that will leave us all more hopeful, connected, and moved to act.
Show up for each other and publicly participate in ways that include and go beyond voting.
Deepen relationships with ourselves, our community, and our planet and experience how we are all interconnected.
Be fluent in power, and the various ways we can use it for our collective benefit.
Work towards outcomes that benefit the many - not just the few.
Now more than ever we need everyone to citizen. Getting started isn’t easy - but we’ve curated a list of tools, resources, and action items just for YOU!
Baratunde shares the four pillars of How To Citizen. Eric Liu, founder of Citizen University, schools us on power - what it is, who has it, and how the practice of citizenship is empty without this literacy.
