I am so excited to introduce you to Asha Dornfest – the creator of voteplus1! Asha is a writer and community organizer. She is the author of several books including one of my favorites: Minimalist Parenting), co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast, and co-founder of Democracy Club, a new model for everyday democratic participation that leads with friendship and trust. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her family.
This week’s episode is all about community impact and how it’s so much more than political. In Asha’s words “community impact is a form of hopeful confidence in your own voice and your ability to make a difference.”
We explored the idea of informed participation in democracy and I challenged her to speak on the concept of “not being political”. I loved what she had to say about giving away your voice.
