Good Trouble is Vital

This episode with Dr Gabe Bosslet is an excellent example of how busy professionals can come together to create the change they know we need. It’s a frank discussion about moving from social media “warriors” to actual advocates and activists. Well done. I’d like Dr B to come back on ETS after the midterms for further discussion about results and future plans. Thank you both!
