FAIR News: FAIR's Community Stands United
Dear Friends of FAIR,
Last week, FAIR in Medicine issued a call to action to stand up for open inquiry and academic freedom in science and healthcare. We asked you to sign FAIR’s Open Letter in Support of Dr. Kenneth Zucker and the Need to Promote Robust Scientific Debate, and were positively overwhelmed with the support we received. FAIR’s community is filled with people who are willing to stand up to defend the belief that objective truth exists, that it is discoverable, and that scientific research must be untainted by any political agenda.
Many thought leaders helped lead the charge, including Jonathan Haidt, Jordan Peterson, Pamela Paresky, Abigail Shrier, Dr. Lisa Littman, and Colin Wright. We are grateful for their continued support for our efforts to promote rigorous scientific debate, fairness, understanding, and humanity in the field of gender medicine. Thank you all for having the courage to defend the essential principles of academic freedom.
