It might be a new year, but a brief glimpse at the headlines suggests a lot of the same old negativity. Avoiding the news can be an understandable response. But while that might feel like a safeguard from anxiety, it’s never been more important to stay informed.
That’s why, every Friday, we round up the stories you need to know about. They’re not always the events that make the front page. Rather, these are the headlines we think those seeking a fairer society should be aware of.
