Besides sharing time with family and friends over food, the primary ingredient of the American Thanksgiving holiday is, of course, gratitude.

This year, Thanksgiving Day is also the first day of Hanukkah - an extremely rare convergence that will not occur again for 79,043 years! The last time it happened was in 1888. So for Jewish Americans, November 28 may be doubly festive this year.

As you take a moment to consider what you're truly thankful for, and share it with those you love, I would like to share my gratitude for you, and all of our phenomenal Health Liberty partners.

Health Liberty is a nonprofit coalition formed by, National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), Fluoride Action Network (FAN), Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), Organic Consumers Association (OCA), and Consumers for Dental Choice.

Each partner-organization has a rich history of advocacy and active campaigning for change and better access to truly empowering health information. Together, we're making great strides toward improving a number of broken systems and health-harming practices:

  • The outdated use of dangerous mercury in dentistry
  • Water fluoridation
  • Forced vaccinations
  • Unlabeled genetically engineered foods
  • The agricultural and food system that promotes unhealthy processed foods while trying to literally outlaw healthy whole organic foods

  • Throughout the year, we've spearheaded and supported a number of fundraising events for our partner organizations in order to help them continue with their mission to improve people's health. In return, they've been dogged and tireless in their efforts to do just that. I cannot imagine where we'd all be without them.
