Q: What’s the best-spent minute at the March Meeting?
A: Stopping by the Contact Congress booth to sign your name to letters to your Congressional delegation on the importance of federal funding for basic research. It takes only a minute. By doing so, you are making your voice heard in Washington and helping to influence the funding levels for physics research and education. To amplify the impact, the APS Washington Office follows up each letter with a call or visit to congressional staff.
The strongest and most persuasive advocates on Capitol Hill come from a Senator or Representative’s constituents. That means you! If you live in the United States, you are qualified to write to your members of Congress.
Contact Congress is overseen by the APS Washington Office. If you have any questions about what is happening in D.C., just stop by the Contact Congress desk to ask the experts.
