Hi all -

My first time posting to this list, but I feel very strongly about this
issue. Thank you to the scientists setting up this initiative. I am an
American researcher at a university in the UK. I will spread the message
how I can via my personal social media, but is there anything that we can
do from across the pond to support you in the States? Please feel free to
email me personally.

Cheers,
Nora
