Join Us at Contact Congress in Boston!

08 April Meeting - 13

If you’re attending the APS March Meeting in Boston next week, please stop by the Contact Congress booth.  This will be your chance to write to your Congressional delegation (that’s your two Senators and your Representative) about the importance of science funding to the nation.  We’ll be located in the Boston Convention Center, on Level 1 in the SE Lobby.  Check the maps in the back of your program, and you’ll find the spot.

As we keep hammering home, this year is especially bad for science.  With the sequestrations alone, the science budgets at NSF, NIST, DOE-SC, NIH, NASA, and DOD face serious cuts.  Yes, the President’s budget request was relatively good for science, but it’s Congress’ job to set the actual budget; Obama’s request is just a starting point.  And as we’ve said in the past, the job of citizens in our system is to tell their elected representatives what they want.

And that brings me back to Contact Congress.

During the meeting, it will ONLY take A MINUTE to sign the prepared letters we have, and you’ll get a fun sticker to put on your badge.  We’ll be open Monday to Wednesday 9a.m. to 6p.m., and Thursday 9a.m. to noon.

And again, we’ll be in the Boston Convention Center, Level 1, SE Lobby.  Hope to see you there!

*P.S.* If you can’t make it to Boston, you can always go to the APS Write Congress page and send your own message to your representatives.
