I wanted to say thank you to our audience, panelists, and cosponsors for coming out last night. In the next days and weeks we are hoping to continue the discussion on these important topics, and will be providing additional information, resources and commentary. We really hope that as many people and as many different viewpoints participate in the debate and we encourage your participation. Please, let me know what you thought of the event, what was useful, what could have been done better, and what still needs to be talked about. Also, please stay tuned as in the next few days we will continuing with blog entries based on some of the discussions from the event, providing related materials, speaker’s bios, the audio recording, and much more.
We have been getting commentary that, while the event was an important first step, more needs to be done. On that note, we would really appreciate it if you could help us understand what the next steps should be. What format should they take? Who needs to be at the table?
