Mission Statement

The mission of Free Radicals is threefold: Accessibility, Political Education, and Social Change


Increase access to scientific knowledge by:

  • Reducing the use of technical language and defining technical terms
  • Making scientific findings and technology more available and open to people outside of academic science

Political Education

Develop a collective political education about the structure and biases of science by:

  • Exploring the historical, political, and cultural context of science
  • Challenging assumptions about the ‘objectivity’ and supremacy of Western science
  • Examining the relationship between Western science and systems of inequality

Social Change

Invest in social change by:

  • Creating new resources that critique and expand ideas about the purpose and goals of science
  • Building and supporting scientific research projects led by and for marginalized communities
