The past year has made one thing clear: The world doesn’t just need more scientists. It needs more defenders of science—now more than ever.

That’s our job at AAAS.

  • We work with decision-makers so that scientific evidence can inform policymaking.
  • We speak out to urge more government funding for research.
  • And when crises strike—like the COVID-19 pandemic—we’re a resource for scientists and the public alike, sharing data, talking to journalists, and advocating for the researchers on the front lines of the disease.
