sustain our nation’s federally funded research enterprise

Members of Congress are continuing their legislative efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Representatives Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Fred Upton (R-MI) are circulating a “Dear Colleague” among their fellow members of the House of Representatives requesting that they sign onto a letter in support of $26 billion in COVID-19 relief to help sustain our nation’s federally funded research enterprise. You can read the "Dear Colleague" and letter text here. Urge your Representative to sign onto the letter and support funding for scientific and medical researchers!

Thank your members of congress for bipartisan action on covid-19

Members of Congress have been hard at work in recent weeks passing legislation to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Working together in a bipartisan manner, Congress has passed (and the President has signed) three bills designed to bolster the response to the outbreak and address the serious and significant impacts of COVID-19 on Americans’ health and wellbeing, personal safety, and financial security. Take a moment to say thank you and urge them to keep working together to support efforts to save lives and stop the pandemic!
