Science Advocacy 101 is the first in the "Advocating for Science and Scientists in 2017 and Beyond" series.

Now more than ever — whether it’s in everyday conversations with friends and family, or in lobbying government for support and funding — we need advocates for science. The events in this series will provide information, tools and skills to better equip you to advocate for basic research, higher education, science funding, and scientific rigor in policy and decision-making.

Co-presented by the Graduate Division and the Science Policy Group at UCSF
