Join the Movement

Science Rising was created to turn a science advocacy moment into a movement. In 2018, groups around the country mobilized scientists and science supporters in the run-up to the mid-term elections to make sure that science was part of the conversation. People stood up and organized events, rallied, wrote op-eds, and talked to candidates about the importance of science-based decision making.

Science Rising has clearly demonstrated that scientists and science advocates have an important role to play in getting candidates on the record for science, and an even more important role to play over the next two years in the run-up to the 2020 election.

We’re taking a short hiatus in 2019 to plan for the future and strategize how to continue to grow and strengthen this movement over the coming years. In the meantime, stay involved and keep science rising! Here’s what you can do:
