Registration Open for In-Person Social Science Advocacy Day on April 24-25

COSSA’s Social Science Advocacy Day is back in person for 2023! COSSA members may join us in Washington, DC on April 24-25, 2023, and make their voices heard in support of social and behavioral science. Register today to receive the Early Bird Rate of $95 until March 3.

You will be teamed up with advocates from your home state and participate in a day of in-person meetings (Tuesday, April 25) with House and Senate offices on Capitol Hill. Through these meetings, you will share reasons why federal government support for social and behavioral science research is so critical and discuss how you and your institution can be helpful to your elected officials. Advocates will be given all the resources they need to have successful meetings. This fun, informative event is a must for anyone within the social and behavioral science community who cares about sustainable funding for our fields and who believe research should help inform sound public policy.

Further, we offer a variety of sponsorship packages that help significantly to defray the costs of Advocacy Day, while providing organizations with additional visibility among colleagues in the social and behavioral science and higher education communities. Several packages come with up to two free Advocacy Day registrations. Check out our 2023 sponsorship opportunities here.
