Policy: Science in the 2018 US Elections

Contributed by kjm34 on Oct 03, 2018 - 06:30 PM

Want candidates to discuss science issues? Curious about what your local candidate's stance is on food sustainability, energy policies, or the environment? Science Debate (sciencedebate.org [1]) is a non-partisan non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that has invited all candidates currently running for House, Senate, and Gubernatorial seats to answer 10 questions on science policy prior to Election Day. You can help by encouraging candidates in your state and district to post their answers, by asking science-related questions at town-halls, or by hosting a Science Debate event with local candidates. Contact Sally Otto at policy@evolutionsociety.org to see how you can help add scientific issues to the discourse during these elections.
