Who We Are

Who We Are

BioConversations is brought to you as a public service by a collaboration of the following groups:

  • Mothers for a Human Future—focused on helping mothers meet the unprecedented challenges of raising children in the 21st century by fighting the forces promoting the commercialization of childhood and the commodification of children.
  • The Center for Genetics and Society— working to encourage responsible uses and effective societal governance of the new human genetic and reproductive technologies.
  • The Public Conversations Project—promoting constructive conversations and relationships among those who have different values, worldviews, and positions related to divisive public issues.
  • The Jamestown Project—reaching across boundaries and generations to promote civic engagement and make democracy real.

Our shared goal is to promote a vigorous national and international public conversation about the implications of the new technologies for the human future. We are working together to urge people to start thinking and talking about the new biotechnologies so that we will all be prepared to participate fully in the decision-making about them.
