Hi all,
Sorry to post this here but as someone who loves being part of the couch surfing community I thought you would be a great group to include.
Also, I will be in Boston from June 13th to July 31st conducting interviews for the study and will be looking for your advice and company.
Here is some information on the study. Contact me if you have questions or are interested.

Share Your Perspective on Pressing Social Issues:

Sociologists Penny Edgell and Kathleen Hull of the University of Minnesota invite you to participate in the “Talking About Social Controversies” (T.A.S.C.) project, a national research study funded by the National Science Foundation exploring how Americans think about important social issues like:

• Genetic Engineering
• Faith-based social services
• The scope of individual religious freedoms

Participating in this research project would involve being in a focus group with 7-9 other individuals in which you and other group members will be asked to discuss your opinions on some of these issues. The group will:

• be held [on/sometime between (fill in appropriate time frame here)]
• last about 90 minutes
• be kept strictly confidential
• be thought-provoking, stimulating, and fun for all involved

In appreciation for your time, you will receive $20.00 upon completing the focus group.

We need to hear your perspective on some of the most important issues facing American society today. If you would like to be a part of this important research and share your thoughts and opinions with others, or if you would just like more information, please contact the following researcher by email or phone:
