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!
urge congress to fund science
Congress is beginning its work on legislation to fund the government in Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21). Last year, a record number of advocates used Research!America’s editable email resource to contact their member of Congress and push for greater investment in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other science and public health agencies. Advocacy works! NIH received a $2.6 billion increase, and other agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Science Foundation (NSF) also received much needed funding increases. Urge Congress to keep up the momentum in FY21!
CULTIVATE CHAMPIONS FOR NIH
In order to enhance our understanding of disease and discover life-saving breakthroughs, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) relies on the support of Congress. Encourage your elected officials to take a leadership role in the Senate and House NIH Caucuses!
