So spruce up your resume and brush up on your interview skills, because we’re going to be jammin’ to some…

You’re hired!

Hi, everyone!

There’s been a lot of grassroots political action lately. People who are generally not politically active have been spurred to action.

So whether you’re marching in this year’s Pride Parade, giving a speech, or calling your representatives to voice your opinion, we’re here to give you the perfect background music with a party––– pun intended––– of…
