    Annie Lowrey

    Annie Lowrey is an accomplished journalist who writes on politics and economic policy for The Atlantic magazine. Before moving over to The Atlantic, she was at the New York Times. In 2019, Annie wrote a book that I read and loved. It’s called Give People Money: How a Universal Basic Income Would End Poverty, Revolutionize Work, and Remake. If you want to dive into this topic more of UBI—or a Universal Basic Income—here are two other books I’d highly recommend:
    — The War on Normal People: The Truth About America's Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income Is Our Future by Andrew Yang
    — Utopia for Realist: How We Can Build the Ideal World by Rutger Bregman
    Lastly, follow Annie on Twitter! And catch her work by reading The Atlantic.

    Rachael Denhollander became known internationally in 2016 as the first woman to pursue criminal charges and speak publicly against USA Gymnastics’ team doctor Larry Nassar, one of the most prolific sexual abusers in recorded history. As a result of her activism over 300 women—including numerous Olympic medalists—came forward as survivors of Nassar’s abuse, eventually leading to his life imprisonment. Read the rest of her bio here.
    Rachael is an incredible advocate for survivors. She works tirelessly to make sure their voices are heard. I've witnessed so much of this advocacy first-hand over the past year.

He is a Co-Founder and Co-Director of Surge—an animal rights organization determined to create a world where compassion towards all non-human animals is the norm.

If you are going to continue consuming animal products in 2020, at least know what's happening behind the scenes and right in front of your face in the meat and animal products industries.
