Political Charge Weekly Recap 7/22

Earlier today, someone thanked me for pulling the good news posts together and asked how it was possible that I could always find good stories. “How many hours does it take you??” they asked.

As it turns out, it doesn’t feel that onerous to me. Throughout the day, I’ll take a few minutes to check one of the dozen websites I have bookmarked for political news, and note any stories I might want to make a TikTok about and/or good news stories that I want to save up for the week. It keeps me informed, but in bite sized pieces.

And with that, let’s get into the good news from this week!
