My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Network for Responsible Public Policy, Ridgewood, NJ, USA
For over 10 years I have very much benefited from the NFRPP provision of balanced and authoritative information from a variety of well-qualified speakers on current public policy matters of national importance. Such subjects as climate change, gun control, national financial matters, the American Constitution, lobbying, voting rights and other such subjects have been presented for over two hours followed by responses to questions.
The live presentations are conducted in front of audiences and are taped and eventually uploaded to the Internet on YouTube. The organization has been able to present such speakers as Nobel Prize winner Stiglitz, and authoritative national public policy advocates such as Lawrence Lessig and Kevin Trenberth. Except for defraying some of their expenses all of the speakers have participated without charge.
Cooperating colleges and universities have provided free meeting space in the meetings have been managed quite nicely by enthusiastic volunteers. All of this has been accomplished with donated funds from the public without any of those funds being paid to staff.
