It is with great pleasure that I am now able to inform you that, on September 25, 2017, PPG will be rolling out its Shock-Free Coalition. This is an initiative that has been developed through the PPG Advocacy Committee over the last 12 months. Its aim is to build an international movement committed to eliminating shock devices once and for all. The Shock-Free Coalition will feature a Shock-Free Pledge, a signature drive, and the rollout of tools and resources to help you help us promote the initiative across our communities. We are also developing “Blueprint” documents to support the execution of local and targeted legislative initiatives. These will be readily available from the Shock-Free webpages.Click here to read the full correspondence
