JaneC Posted August 12, 2004 Share Posted August 12, 2004 I've been following the post "who wants to be on Oprah" after I had posted on 8/10/04 in the Activism Forum that I had submitted a show idea to the Oprah show (see post for exact content of the post and submission). I know others have submitted to her show in the past as well. When I submitted I was somewhat hesitant about speaking for the group but I just felt so strongly that the message needed to get out. I agree no one group (young, old, male, female, smoker, non-smoker) is more important than another but the message needs to be tailored to the audience. Because this is such an important issue, I think we can and should act individually but as a group I think we will be more effective if we coordinate efforts. Ginny mentioned having the board approve these efforts (press releases, etc.) if people are speaking/submitting on behalf of LCSC. I think that sounds reasonable or have the board appoint a group to direct these efforts. I think our group brings a unique perspective to the issue in addition to ALCASE and WALC. OUR VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD! Jane Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
