About the National News Roundup category

The National News Roundup summarizes the good, the bad, and the outright weird since inauguration weekend. By Kara Hurvitz.

Hi there! If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering who I am and why you should listen to me. (It’s a fair cop.) So here’s a little about me: I’m an advocate, educator, and activist with degrees in law and social work. By day, I help connect people to health-related social needs, which means I do a lot of work on housing, immigration, and other social fundamentals that this administration hates. By night, I fight crime–nah, just kidding; I write the NNR and the related essays you see cataloged here.

Why the NNR? Well, I want to do everything I can to help folks stay informed, connected, and empowered during this difficult time, and this project lets me put work I already do to good use. Plus, I get to snark about the news and current administration. Everyone wins!
