So, you did your civic duty and voted in this month’s elections like the GOOD global citizen that you are. Now you can sit back, relax, and let the incumbents do their thing, right? Not so fast! There’s so much more within your power that you can do for your community, your city, your state, and your country. So, in this season of Thanksgiving, let’s come together to make a difference wherever we are, wherever we can. Check out 10 down-and-dirty ways you can help change the world that anyone can get behind—no matter your political persuasion.


The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
