How do you make the world a better place? You might become an activist, a journalist, or simply an informed citizen. But in all cases, you'll be working for or against the national, state and local policies that affect our work, our health, our education and our social lives.
Many of the things that affect your life: the availability of good jobs,
the safety of your community, access to health care, and the quality of
the environment, depend on policy—the laws,
rules and programs we vote for to determine how our society works.
If you want to make a positive change you need to analyze and change policy.
