Stretch Goal & Thank you!

April 19, 2019

We are excited to share that we have officially reached our goal of $1,500! Thank you so much to everyone who has made this possible through donations and shares. We are so grateful that you care about the role that science should play in policy as much as we do!


But we can do more! We are setting a stretch goal of $2,500 to continue raising money for state wide science policy advocacy and scholarships for our members to attend nation wide conferences.

  • $150 will allow us to put on workshops to inform STEM students about ballot initiatives.
  •  $250 extra will allow us to sponsor keynote talks from science policy experts.
  • $500 will fund an entire trip to Sacramento to meet with lawmakers and lend a scientific voice on impactful legislation.
  • $1000 will help support a students travel, accommodations, and registration to a national conference where they will learn from the science policy experts and gain the support to become the science policy leaders of tomorrow. 

Please give what you can and if you have already donated or are unable to, a simple share on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram is just as valuable! Thank you for believing in a better tomorrow by supporting the scientists of today.

We're so close to our goal! +What we've been up to

April 17, 2019

Thank you all for your support!


It has been quite the month. We have raised 90% of our goal with 22 donors and we are so thankful to all of you! Our goal is less than $150 away, or just three donations of $50. We still have two weeks left in our campaign, so please help spread the word about our program. You can share directly from this page!


The group has hardly been quiet these past several weeks and we wanted to share with you several highlights: 


  • A group of us (pictured below) traveled to Washington DC with the CASE (Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering) workshop sponsored by AAAS. These students met with lawmakers, attended policy workshops, and learned legislative skills that are essential for writing science into policy. 
    • Our members will be sharing the lessons they learned in a discussion-based seminar to the Berkeley community. Please join us at one of these two identical sessions; details located here and here.


  • Our very own Eric Lee, graduate student in Infectious Diseases, gave testimony on a bill he helped write on the floor of the State legislature in Sacramento earlier this month! Last year Eric's proposal for a bill requiring the labeling of probiotics was chosen in a competition to be brought into law. 


Your continued support allow us to not only train to become the future policy makers of America, but, as seen above, ensure that we have the financial support to change policy now. 


Thank you again!



on behalf of us all!
