Dr. Pop

This week’s featured partner is Dr. Pop, an excellent website started buy Gilda Hass. Dr. Pop is a popular education website that helps people become better story-tellers and strategic thinkers by explaining complicated things in simple ways. The main areas of focus for the site are the economy, urban planning, and democracy, and how they all work. “The economy is much too important to leave to the economists,” is one of the great lines on the site that gets at the heart of what they do.

You’ll find great resources and tools specifically for organizers, educators, and students, but useful for nonprofit organizations and community members who are working to bring about change.

Overall, the site focuses on fairness and equity and how we can create a better world in which we take care of each other – all cornerstones of a healthy commons.
