Today, we’re fighting just to maintain the investments the government previously made in the name of science.

For as little as $50, you can become a member of AAAS and help us continue to influence policymakers on behalf of the scientific community.

Join by September 30th and you will receive access to the journal Science for a year plus a free AAAS “I’ve got my ION you” t-shirt with membership.

Here are just a few of the many initiatives your membership will support:

  • Collaboration with 60 scientific societies (and counting) to urge Congress to reject anti-science policies
  • A national op-ed campaign by members and academics
  • Briefing Capitol Hill staffers on the importance of science funding
  • Congressional district visits by scientists
