We submitted recommendations for Budget 2014

In the recommendations submitted to the government and Members of Parliament, we question some approaches to budget making and call for the budget process to be more transparent and inclusive. Read our op-ed in the Straits Times!


An inclusive approach to family

In this Year of the Family, we must remember that family life is a privilege many cannot enjoy. Read our op-ed in the Straits Times on the need to bring discussions around family and income inequality together into the same frame.

Society must promote health of all

The Health Promotion Board's FAQs on sexuality have seen much controversy recently. The HPB has the right and the duty to dispel myths about same-sex relations. Read our op-ed in MyPaper on the need to focus on the well-being of all.
