Australian Skeptics Inc is regularly involved in a range of campaigns and investigations, some of which have been well-publicised (like the investigation of the PowerBalance wrist band), and others that are on-going and still under wraps.
We have a sub-committee dedicated to special investigations, headed up by noted Skeptic Richard Saunders, who has been running investigations into everything from ghosts and ghoulies to quack medical treatments for some time.
We also have ad hoc committees devoted to specific campaigns – positive ones such as our recent vaccination and blood donor drives, and more critical ones that proactively respond to the promotion of woo and pseudoscience, such as events put on by anti-vaccination proponents and those pushing unproven and disproven alternative medical practices.
In many cases we act in concert with other groups and individuals who are running their own programs, whether in Australia or overseas.
We always welcome suggestions for new action items, whether a person or organisation that needs looking into, or one that needs bringing to the attention of authorities, the media, and the public.
This is your chance to get involved. Feel free to contact us with tips and suggestions. You might also like to add your own active contribution and play a part in the campaign and/or investigation itself.
We will be setting up a dedicated online page for this, but in the meantime you can make your voice heard by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
