Stand for Science (#Stand4Science)

Join the MPSA Thunderclap as We Stand for Science

This year marks the 75th MPSA annual conference, and it will bring over five thousand political science scholars to meet in Chicago and discuss their current research and new projects.  With members from over one hundred countries, and over one in five from outside the United States, this is truly an international gathering. 

Unfortunately, the value of science is under attack in many areas. In the United States, the proposed federal budget has a substantial decrease in the level of public funding for research and science.  Together, as members of the science community, political scientists have the power to create greater awareness of the importance of our research. 

Help us spread the word about the importance of political science research by donating a Tweet or Facebook post. By giving one-time access now to your social media channels, you agree to join colleagues and friends in sharing a consistent message at 9am Central on Saturday, April 8.  Join the Thunderclap!
