Here’s what past participants have said:
“My published op ed generated 7 interview requests, including two TV tapings and national print exposure. I would not have responded to these without the motivation, guidance and support provided by Informed Opinions.” – Maneesha Deckha, Professor of Law, University of Victoria
“Informed Opinions’ workshop was informative and highly productive. My op-ed was translated into multiple languages and was the most read story across all Vice networks worldwide for a full day.
