COSSA’s 2024 Social Science Advocacy Day

COSSA’s tenth annual Social Science Advocacy Day will be taking place on April 8-9, 2024, in Washington, DC. Advocacy Day brings together social and behavioral scientists and science advocates from across the country to engage with policymakers in Congress about issues important to our community, such as federal funding. Participants will be teamed up with advocates and participate in a day of in-person meetings with House and Senate offices on Capitol Hill. Through these meetings, you will share reasons why federal government support for social and behavioral science research is so critical and discuss how you and your institution can be helpful to your elected officials. Advocates will be given all the resources they need to have successful meetings, including a preparatory seminar, and all your meetings will be scheduled for you. The only thing you need to do is come to Washington prepared to talk about why you love social and behavioral science!

This fun, informative event is a must for anyone within the social and behavioral science community who cares about sustainable funding for our fields and who believes research should help inform sound public policy.
