Take the Message to Congress
When advocating for science, it is particularly important that the messages be clearly presented, compelling to nonscientists and based on scientific evidence. The American Society for Microbiology Advocacy Team has created the following guide to help you communicate with Congress.
Funding for Science. ASM commends the Biden Administration for demonstrating a strong commitment to public health and science in the FY 2022 Presidential budget. The proposed FY 2022 budget would strengthen basic, translational and clinical research across multiple agencies. As Rep. Bill Foster (D-IL-11) highlighted during an exclusive meeting with ASM advocates, future funding and ongoing legislation will have wide-ranging implications for science, including the bioeconomy and the scientific workforce.
