ENGAGE TO CHANGE “OUR STATUS QUO”
1. Demand that unbiased, academic experts are consulted as resources for evidence based data for public policy issues of Economy, Environment, HealthCare, Women’s and LGBTQ Rights, eliminating the industry funded pundits representing Think tanks , PR Firms and Lobbyists with their questionable credentials.
