I don't have enough time to write the research focused components of this book and could use some assistance here. Here's the outline:
Personal story on civic engagement
The extent of voter apathy and disengagement
-National turnout numbers and trends
-Analysis of local elections
Other forms of measuring civic engagement (meetings, etc)
-Forces influencing apathy, disengagement and cynicism
-Media and information
-The role of those in power in fueling misinformation
What we can do about it
-Personal responsibility to get our neighbors and friends involved
-Strategies to combat false information sources
-Public policy, reforming our democracy to incentivize engagement- rank choice voting, same day voter registration, etc.
I would like about 25,000 words written.
