Our Vision, Mission, and Core Values
We envision a world where communities use science to inform policy decisions.
To guide communities in using science for social good.
We know that diverse voices working together create better strategies, policies, and action. Inclusion makes us all stronger.
Grassroots Community Organizing
We seek to empower our community by encouraging participation in democracy, amplifying our voices by speaking together.
We understand that a practical knowledge of the scientific process helps communities make better personal and political choices.
We know that the best policies are not created by political ideologies or media talking points. Instead, the most useful legislation accesses relevant information across fields.
We seek collaboration over competition, in learning from one another, and in devising creative solutions by including a diversity of opinions.
We know that the practice of science should be accessible, transparent, and accountable to the community. This means active listening, accurate reporting, and responsive research.
We understand that strong policy decisions transcend political parties. We seek to speak meaningfully to influence policy, rather than politics.
