Repair Association reviews its 2023
"You bought it, you should own it. Period. You should have the right to use it, modify it, and repair it wherever, whenever, and however you want." This powerful declaration is the heart of the mission at Repair.org, which stands unwavering in its commitment to fight for your right to fix – at every level, in every arena, across the globe.
In 2023, the growing organization hit the ground running with the historic passage of the Colorado Agriculture Right to Repair law. Momentum only grew from there, leading to the successful enactment of broader legislation in Minnesota. Repair advocacy then took center stage at the United States Congress, influencing national dialogue on Right to Repair.
The journey continued with remarkable milestones and September was a landmark month. Not only did the association help persuade Google to extend Chromebook support to ten years, but Congress also introduced a pivotal agriculture right to repair bill. The crescendo of R2R efforts resonated in October when California joined the ranks of New York, Colorado, and Minnesota in championing right to repair laws. The group's influence also echoed globally, with significant strides in the EU, Canada, and India.
"None of this would have been possible without you," noted the Right to Repair team, headed by Gabriel-Gay Byrne, in its letter commemorating the landmark year of 2023. "Your donations, your calls to legislators, and your conversations with loved ones have been the cornerstone of these successes. You've played a crucial role in securing the right to repair for millions, nationwide."
