Resources for progressive thought and activism in America

I'm an older millennial who is finally getting more politically and socially engaged thanks to this election cycle, and I want to learn more about the resources (digital or otherwise) other MeFites use to be informed and stay engaged politically and socially in this country, from local to national. Nothing is too mundane or esoteric or partisan; I simply want to learn. [more inside]

Was/am professional activist organizer. Giving it up. Need help.

For the last 7 years or so (since graduating from college), I've been a professional political organizer, essentially, working for progressive movement organizations doing primarily new media/online media/digital work, but also spending time on fundraising, action planning, communications, and a few other things as needed. After a lot of thought and consideration, I'm starting to suspect that I can no longer work as part of the left (or at least, my corner of the US left) and still be emotionally healthy with the stress I deal with all the time. I don't know what to do next. [more inside]

calling all progressives! where's the next Russ Feingold?

I'm an extremely liberal Democrat who comes from a long line of extremely liberal Democrats, but I've become increasingly disillusioned with the national party apparatus over the past handful of years. Can you help me put together a list of progressive Democrat office-holders and up-and-coming candidates to buoy and inspire an otherwise devoted liberal's flagging enthusiasm? [more inside]

What, if any, is the in-group term for "SJW"?

Is there an in-group term for "Social Justice Warrior (SJW)"? That is, I definitely think there is a signified there, the strain of progressives focused on privilege, intersectionality, and oppressor/oppressed group identities, so I think it's a term with useful meaning, but it is also an out-group term with mildly negative/mocking connotation so not the best for writing seriously. Plenty SJWs here, what do you call yourselves? The closest I've heard is "intersectional feminist" which I don't even see all that often & also many SJWs are more focused on another area like race.

suggest resources for budding liberal

A student of mine (college junior) asked me to give him a list of progressively-oriented blogs, films, and websites. I have a few ideas for him, but would like to solicit the hive mind for more.

Is there life after 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry'?

In light of the horrendously awful "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," are there any GOOD (i.e. both funny and non-homophobic) comedies about straight people either having to pretend they're gay or, more generally, about straight people slowly but surely letting go of their prejudices towards LGBT people?

grants for liberals?

I have some ideas about creating a sort of web site or "netroots" organization around promoting progressive, liberal, and anti-authoritarian ideas, as opposed to a lot of what I see online which mostly concerns itself with the short term goal of getting democrats elected -- not that that's not important, but I don't see much focus on long term strategy and ideas. Anyway I'm wondering if there are any grants I can apply for to help get started. [more inside]
