Hundreds of thousands of advocates across the country have dedicated their time and energy to contact their representatives over the past few weeks as Congress races to pass policies before the end of session. We’re writing today to ask you to take add your voice to support science once again.
On December 7, Scott Pruitt, administrator of the EPA, will testify in front of the House Energy and Commerce Environment Subcommittee. Join us in asking our representatives to hold Scott Pruitt publicly accountable for his efforts to undermine and destroy the EPA and its mandate to protect our health and environment.
Help us send a message that we need our representatives to ask hard questions and demand real answers. Let your representatives know that you’ll be watching.
Contact your representative directly or sign a petition asking them to #PressPruitt on vital issues. Why has he limited the role of scientists serving as science advisers to the EPA, instead replacing them with science denialists? Why is he continuing to question the scientific consensus on climate change, ignoring the findings of a recent report from the Trump administration that concluded that humans are the primary drive behind climate change? What are his continued plans to roll back regulations that protect our air and water? We need to know why the administrator of the EPA repeatedly asks to undermine the agency’s mandate to protect our health and environment.

But don’t stop there. In the next few weeks, science faces threats from many sides and needs your support. Congress’ 2017 session ends on December 14 — set aside a few minutes each day to advocate for science.
Tax Bill: Send a message to your representative that the Grad Student Tax in the new tax bill will jeopardize the future of science by forcing thousands of graduate students not to continue their training. Share our open letter, signed by more than 40 partners, and petition and support future scientists.
Net Neutrality: Overturning net neutrality will have grave consequences for the future of science, potentially censoring scientific research and data and empowering internet service providers to limit the freedom of information we rely on. Send the FCC a message.
Thank you for continuing to advocate for science. #KeepMarching,
March for Science
