Beyond Politics: Engaging Congress

Modified: February 28, 2017

After a vitriolic anti-science and anti-evidence national election, Republicans control The White House and Congress. What’s the impact on the roughly $140 billion federal research and development budget—a figure down in constant dollars from $160 billion in 2010? How does it change the way scientists and engineers reach out and communicate with lawmakers? This talk will explore ways to engage government officials as well as those who influence them. Former National Science Foundation Legislative & Public Affairs Director Julia Moore has over 30 years’ experience in science communications and advocacy.

"Beyond Politics: Engaging Congress” is on March 7th at noon, TGS Commons (2122 Sheridan Road). Register here.
