Thank you for your comment, Tina - yes, aren't these a great series? As part of creating a safe learning space in these interactive workshops, participants engage in reflective opportunities with each other and the Course Trainer as part of the process, so they are not video taped. Glad you asked the question!

Daun, This letter is an incredible example of how we should and can engage in policy change while educating our elected officials and the general public.
