This website and The GOTMFV Show podcast have a singular goal: Save our democracy. Through the words we write on the blog and the words we pod on the podcast, we want to make sure you have both the information and the smart framing you need to save democracy and make the world a better place for everyone.
We’ve been at it for fifteen years (that’s a brazillion in blog years) and we’ve never wavered from that.
The best part is, thanks to the support of our readers and sponsors, we don’t have to run ads and, unlike most other sites, our regular contributors are compensated for their democracy-saving words.
This year, our 2019 Annual Eclectablog Fundraiser Party is on Sunday, November 3rd from 6-9 p.m. at the Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales + Kitchen (2319 Bishop Circle East in Dexter). We will have free food (which is OUTSTANDING!), open bar, and our 2019 Eclectagrog souvenir glass to take home. As we have for the past couple of years, we will be doing a live recording of The GOTMFV Show podcast.
The most exciting news is that this year we’ll be joined by the extraordinary Anat Shenker-Osorio, a communications expert who is teaching progressives globally how to frame their message in the most effective way. We’ve had her on our podcast and we’ve been exhorting people to listen to her own transformative podcast Brave New Words. At this year’s party, she’ll be sharing her knowledge about how all of us can be more effective communicators on the issues we value.
Facebook keyboard warriors, organization staffers, candidates for office, elected officials, and anyone else who is resisting and persisting will benefit from Anat’s insights which come from data-backed research done in partnership with Professor Ian Haney-López, DEMOS, AFSCME, and others.
We’re asking for a $50 donation but won’t turn away anyone so please join us for an informative conversation and a celebration of another amazing year.
