PCRM Launches Legislative Fund
There is a time to educate, and sometimes a time to legislate. PCRM’s work on Capitol Hill has grown in recent years. In December, we created the PCRM Legislative Fund to shape important public policy reforms. As a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, the PCRM Legislative Fund will support PCRM’s work to promote nutrition’s key role for health and to advance ethics in science and medicine. If you find yourself thinking “there ought to be a law…,” please lend your support to making it happen.
