Being a Force for the Science Budget

AAAS and AAAS members have been busy advocating for the science budget

After President Trump released a proposed FY 2018 budget on May 23 that would severely cut funding for scientific research, our members have been busy contacting their representatives. Through AAAS’s advocacy platform, more than 550 members sent 1,687 letters to 330 congressional offices expressing a range of views on how the budget request would impact research.

Several members shared perspectives with their communities by writing op-eds in newspapers.
