Welcome

We are a group of graduate students and postdocs at Yale University dedicated to the mission of fostering a scientifically informed electorate, which we pursue through science communication, advocacy, and policy initiatives. In the service of this mission, we pursue several specific initiatives each year with the aim of engaging the public and policymakers in scientific discourse.
