The political news cycle is fast and furious—which is why we shifted through the recent noise and found a few articles we believe matter. These thoughts and ideas made us pause, think and, most importantly, consider what is happening in the world. We hope they do the same for you.

On being undocumented: “I’m not willing to be a bargaining chip to make her seem like a criminal. Everything people admire about Dreamers is because of our parents.” (Humans of New York)

On the Republicans’ new healthcare bill: “Women would ‘bear the brunt’ of the bill’s funding cuts and weaker regulations, says policy analyst, with access to reproductive healthcare particularly affected.” (The Guardian)

Hillary Clinton, in her own words: “Clinton’s memoir radiates with fury at the forces and the figures ranged against her, but it is also salted with self-searching, grief, bitterness, and fitful attempts to channel and contain that fury.” (The New Yorker)

Survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki push nuclear ban: “They are a living challenge to Trump’s bombastic remarks; many have dedicated their lives to abolishing nuclear weapons that killed their families and destroyed their communities.” (Inkstick Media)

Social media and Russian influence: “Congressional investigators are digging in on Russia's use of Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies to try to influence the 2016 campaign.” (NPR)

Even college doesn’t bridge the racial income gap: “The misperception is probably rooted in resistance to evidence that race, and not just individual effort, determines success and achievement.” (The New York Times)

And, how to help victims of Hurricane Maria and the Mexico earthquake
