Science advocacy is a broad field that everyone can participate in, no matter their background. Whether you are a researcher interested in advocating for an issue important to you, a student who wants to explore a career in science policy, or a concerned community member, you can get involved. At the AAAS Office of Government Relations, we believe it is essential for scientists’ voices to be heard to ensure robust and sustained science funding; increase scientific integrity; champion diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the sciences; and promote science as an international enterprise.
