Upcoming webinar on scientific and political advocacy
On Wednesday, January 18 from 2-3pm ET, we’ll be presenting a webinar in partnership with the American Geophysical Union on the scientific implications of the new Congress, including what this shifting political landscape means for scientists who wish to participate in policy and lawmaking. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how scientists can safely engage with Congress on legislative matters that are important to them. We’ll also cover general First Amendment rights and explain how scientists can be most effective in their advocacy efforts while offering recommendations for best practices. Register here.

Check it out in the latest issue of Trends Magazine by the American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources.
