Advocate for Data Science and Literacy on Capitol Hill

To take advantage of JSM being in our nation’s capital, the ASA science policy office invites ASA members to advocate for greater data science and literacy on Capitol Hill through in-person meetings with staff of their congressional representatives. The congressional visits are planned for Thursday, August 11.

Participants will be prepped earlier in the week about how to conduct successful meetings with Hill staffers and a data science and literacy bill currently in development. ASA staff will also provide leave-behind materials for the visits and instructions for requesting the meetings, with a goal of 4–5 meetings for each state’s group.

Sign up by June 17. For more information, contact ASA Director of Science Policy Steve Pierson.
