What Project Panelists Say
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the term sanctuary and/or the anonymity of the discussion panelists mean that IF or its discussion processes have some religious, fraternal, or cult component?
No. We just use that term as a shorthand way to describe the sense of safety and freedom that our discussion process is meant to foster among the panelists. There is no indoctrination, induction ceremony, or secret handshake. Discussion participants are not affiliated with the Foundation.
