Looking for a way to help Science for the People?

If you’d like to be helpful but can’t make meetings, one GREAT thing you could do would be to share your knowledge of notable examples of science for and/or against the people happening here in Western Mass. You should completely feel free to share descriptions of your own work if you think it fits. We have made a convenient web-based form so that you can submit these examples either anonymously or with your info included. We would like to be able to share the positive examples to inspire others… and consider the possibility of following up on the negative examples in future campaigns.

Also: The direct action working group is working on getting an inventory of the skills and resources we have within our network as we move forward with our goal of organizing ourselves and like-minded scientists to collaborate more with grassroots organizers and campaigns. Please take a few minutes out of your busy day to fill out this form–it shouldn’t take long. This will help us get a sense of the kind of solidarity we can offer as an organization right now.
