Stand with Science – a call to congress to protect science funding

A group of MIT grad students made a website to encourage people to get in contact with their congress representative to guarantee science funding in the future and sign a letter. Here is their website: http://standwithscience.org.

Congress and the debt supercommittee are currently looking to reduce projected deficits by more than 1.2 trillion dollars over the next decade. While this will help secure America’s finances, these measures will be painful and must be chosen with forethought. We are reaching out to Congress via the letter to demonstrate how federal science funding is an essential source of American prosperity that cannot afford to be cut.However, if Congress and the debt supercommittee do not agree on deficit reduction before November 23rd, there will be mandatory cuts of roughly 9% across the board.

Time is of the essence! Be heard, and improve America’s future.

 

Sign the letter to send to your congress representative.
