The Take Back Your Time movement, of which John de Graaf is a co-founder, has been working for many of these things for 14 years, hoping to bring the United States into the 21st Century as it is experienced in most wealthy countries. We will be discussing many of these issues at our Time Matters: National Take Back Your Time Conference at Seattle University August 25-27. Do think about joining us.
