After Proposition 71, The CRCC

One of the cardinal rules of large scale activism is not to let organization, effort and enthusiasm go to waste after the primary goal has been achieved. Yahoo! News reports that Proposition 71 backers have created the California Research and Cures Coalition (CRCC) with the aim of "educating opinion leaders, elected officials and policy makers, medical professionals, media and the general public about the potential for stem cell research, specific progress in the research fields and public policy developments. Beyond general education, CRCC intends to take a national lead in identifying and developing best practices and standards (medical and ethical) for stem cell research to help expedite discovery of cures and treatments for patients with chronic diseases and injuries."
