Most of this is not activism-related; some of it is not even politics-related. But I'm reading a lot more widely than I used to, and I thought other folks might also be interested in some of my finds?

Election-related
* Graham preparing 'Dreamers' bill - bipartisan bill to protect DACA participants

* An unaired interview on Trump, authoritarianism and kleptocracy (Sarah Kendzior). I really liked this - more hopeful than the title sounds, to me.

* Nonprofit journalists are gearing up with a flood of donations (NYT)

* Fuck Everything and Blame Everyone (Deadspin?). This was a cathartic read.

Around the world
* How an Indian Innovator Reverse-Engineered the Making of Sanitary Pads (NYT Mag) - A guy figures out the cheapest possible way to make pads, reproduces the manufacturing equipment, and starts setting up little shops all over India run by local women. There are still good things happening in the world, you guys.

* The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare (NYT). AKA why you should throw out your non-stick pans, but also a decades-long story of criminally awful pollution and one guy who did something about it.

* Bloomberg's "Jealousy List", aka stuff so good they wish they'd published it. aka where I found a lot of these other links!
