Tom Holder, SR founder, gave two talks in the run up the UCLA. The first was a small talk to members of the UCLA community on April 6th. The talk went well with questions being asked on how researchers could most effectively advocate for research, and overcome institutional inertia that can hinder outreach efforts.
On the eve of Pro-Test for Science rally, Holder was invited by the UCLA branch of the American Medical Student Association. The talk was well received, with many students unaware of the violence surrounding research at UCLA.
