Are you interested in advocating for evidence-based policy, but unsure how to begin?
Join us at the Seattle Central Library for Making Government Work for All: a workshop on public comment for science, labor and environmental advocacy.
WHEN: 6-8:30 PM Thursday, October 26
Two UW graduate student-led groups, the UAW Local 4121 Climate Justice Working Group and The Public Comment Project, are working with the Union of Concerned Scientists to bring you an evening of free draft beer, pizza, and public comment.
Public comment is an underutilized way for the scientific community to integrate research directly into public policy, especially for early-career scientists and interdisciplinary researchers. We’ll go over how it works, what effective comments look like, and guide you through your own public comment on one of three current comment opportunities.
