Volume 21

Spring 2023 Edition

From the Editors

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the 21st volume of The Public Purpose Journal! Every year we are so lucky to grow and and have extraordinary pieces submitted. This year was no exception as our authors grappled with the question, “What is the state of our nation?” The last few years have tested our strength as a country and changed not only the political landscape, but the way policy is implemented. We hope you enjoy reading this year’s journal and look forward the publication of the next volume.
