January Update: Ocean Sciences Meeting, Silencing Science, and We’re Hiring

Find out about our work at the February Ocean Science Meeting in San Diego; learn about the 388 government attacks on science we've documented in the Silencing Science Tracker; and more.

Come see us at the Ocean Sciences Meeting.
If you’re planning to attend the Ocean Sciences Meeting, save the date for our poster presentation on how scientists can safely and effectively engage with policymakers in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. It’s happening on Tuesday, February 18 between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. in Poster Hall C–D.

How science has suffered since November 2016.
We’ve documented 388 attacks on science by federal, local, and state governments since November 2016 in the Silencing Science Tracker, a database we maintain with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law. The newest entry, based on a report by The Washington Post, describes how hundreds of federal scientists have been forced out, sidelined, or muted since President Trump took office.

We’re hiring!
Our New York City office seeks a motivated fundraiser to build out a more robust development program and coordinate the cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors and institutional funders. Visit our website to learn more, and please help us spread the word.
