Houston, we have a problem. Our industry needs funding. The people on the front lines who are fighting the good fight, lobbying for policies that help protect patients, giving opportunities to women, minorities and people of color, relentlessly voicing their thoughts and concerns on regulations for businesses, organizing community outreach programs, and of course, getting people out of prison who are still stuck in there for offenses that are no longer illegal. Unfortunately, there are still too many companies and people in this industry that do not give back and appear to be just fine letting everyone else do the hard work for them as long as they can profit on top of it. This has got to stop and it's up to us to make it happen.
Our speakers are going to talk to us about what we can do and how we can do it. They are going to help us understand what is needed and who needs it. They are going to get us thinking out of the box so we can all continue to support this industry and help make people's lives better each and every day.
Thank you to our amazing sponsors!!
