In addition to working towards the creation of Generations Ahead, during 2007 CGS gave priority attention to our communications and base-building efforts. Highlights follow; see the full report [PDF].
We authored a record number of articles and op-eds published in key outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, New Scientist, Hastings Center Bioethics Forum, Boston Globe, World Watch, Philadelphia Inquirer, San Francisco Chronicle, and Newsday.
We were quoted on almost a weekly basis in news and feature articles appearing in outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Associated Press, Christian Science Monitor, Wired, New England Journal of Medicine, New Scientist, Colorlines, Dissent, and AlterNet.org, and appeared regularly on radio and television.
We presented at over thirty conferences, symposia, and other organizational events, including ones sponsored by the New America Foundation, American Association of People with Disabilities, National Health Law Program, Law Students for Choice, Center for American Progress, Planned Parenthood-USA, US Social Forum, Black Women for Wellness, and the American Public Health Association. Internationally, CGS briefed members of the Friends of the Earth International Executive Committee in Amsterdam, and were invited to participate in the World Council of Churches Bioethics Forum in Johannesburg, South Africa.
We launched a new and completely redesigned website and blog, and greatly expanded our press outreach and other communications operations.
We broke the $1 million benchmark for funds raised for our work. Appreciations to our many long-time and new donors!
