Under the Magnifying Glass

Our quarterly Under the Magnifying Glass newsletter is a brand new series that examines topics from our past Understanding... series through the lens of current events and popular culture. Our goal is to break down theoretical ideas into more digestible concepts, examples, and actions that show up in people's lives everyday.
