Yesterday Michelle Murphy, who is leading our Toronto event, fielded interviews from CNN, BBC, CBC, time, NPR, vice. It is too many to keep track of. We haven’t had a website until yesterday night (and it hasn’t yet been publicized even now as I type) so we haven’t been able to stress the importance of the network that coordinates this initiative. Here we are! The task at hand is huge and moving very quickly. Here’s a thanks too all that have helped us get going!
