Every day on Capitol Hill, lawmakers and leaders create and enact the policies that fund the majority of earth science research; regulate natural resources and drive energy exploration; and shape the broader landscape of science education. We must ensure that wherever these critical issues are discussed, geoscience is at the table.

As a trusted partner, convener, and collaborator, we are able to work across the science and professional society worlds, as well as across the aisle, to magnify our impact.
