I’m a proud volunteer for Michigan’s grassroots, non-partisan anti-gerrymandering group, Voters Not Politicians. VNP volunteers around the state collected 400,000 signatures to get our proposal for an Independent Citizens Redistridicting Commission on the ballot in Nov. 2018. Check it out to get involved or donate, and follow @NotPoliticians on Twitter and Facebook.
In 2018 I was pleased to contribute a historical article to the Digital Transgender Archive, and important project that collects pre-internet materials for researchers. This article was from microfilm of the Manistee News Advocate that I was able to read at the Manistee County Library, back when I compiled the Advocate’s Looking Back Column.
I’ve also served as a judge for the National Federation of Press Women’s Communications Contest in 2017 and 2018.
