Get Involved

AGI's Geoscience Policy Program partners with other professional science societies to create useful materials that help scientists communicate with decision-makers. Check out the materials below and visit our member society websites for more helpful resources. 

Communicating with your representatives is an important part of being an active and responsible citizen. Your Representative and Senators have been elected to serve you, and they need to know what you, their constituent, believe are the important issues. Visits to your member, either in Washington or within the state or district, are generally the most effective way to explain your position. Visits are not, however, always feasible and a well-reasoned personal letter is another practical way to get your message across. The following information is meant to serve as a resource for helping you better communicate with Congress.
