Want to get involved with science and politics at the national level without leaving your hometown? During the month of August, all U.S. Senators and Representatives return to their home districts to work. Participating in a science policy event at home is a great way to meet with your Representative and Senators during the congressional recess. This is a fantastic opportunity to establish relationships or build upon existing ones to discuss the important Earth and space science research that’s happening in your district and state. You may even want to invite them to your school, laboratory, or field site.
To help you prepare, AGU Public Affairs is hosting a How to Have a Successful District Visit Webinar on Thursday 17 July from 1:00-2:00PM EDT, which will provide you with the training and resources to have a successful district visit.
