>>> Dear Nancy,
>>> Science is open and international. The US is currently not, unfortunately.
>>> Until that situation is resolved, may I ask you to consider moving the upcoming GRC conferences to openly accessible locations, such as international conference sites as in Cancun in Mexico or in other countries. 
>>> This would allow fair and equal access of scientist from all countries and religions to your conferences, and prevent a boycott movement from forming.
>>> Your conferences in Europe and Asia are a great start.
>>> With best wishes,
>>> Henning Stahlberg.
