Become a Science Advocate Today

Anyone who believes in the importance of science can be a science advocate. The future of science, and of our ecosystems — from coral reefs, to rainforests, to tundras, — depends on the strength of science advocates like you.

By becoming a member of AAAS, you’ll ensure that together, we can continue to advance science with the help of, and for the benefit of, all people.

Join for as little as $50 by February 28, 2018 and you will receive access to the Journal Science for a year and exclusive AAAS member benefits.

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

  • Briefing Capitol Hill staffers on the importance of science funding
  • Inspiring the next generation by placing retired scientists in K-12 classrooms across the nation
  • Making science accessible to all by bringing scientists, policymakers, and the general public together though one-of-a-kind events and workshops
  • Collaboration with 60 scientific societies (and counting) to urge Congress to reject policies that disregard scientific evidence
