Whether we admit it or not, most of us bring our political views with us to work, even though we may be discouraged from trying to persuade others to agree with us. Still, the workplace is an appropriate venue for some political activities. You could organize a "write for a cause" lunch, in which you and your coworkers write articles, letters, or e-mails in support of causes of your own choosing. The organizer can provide addresses or emails of government officials or agencies handling a wide variety of issues. As an election nears, have a "register to vote" station in your workplace. Bring voter registration applications and encourage your coworkers to complete the applications at lunch or during a break. Drop the completed applications at the post office on your way home.
