Vote Your ConSCIENCE: Elevating Health Justice in the 2020 Elections
2020 marks the eighth U.S. presidential election cycle since Treatment Action Group’s founding in 1992. A hallmark of our activism has been to prepare for each presidential and congressional election cycle strategically, to ensure that whoever is elected, and whoever controls the House and the Senate, is informed about the best scientifically grounded research and policy and research programs.
