Take Action

The Advocacy Network helps members stay informed on the many issues that affect neuroscience research.

SfN's Advocacy Webinars educate members on how they can make a difference.

Use the Advocacy Action Center to generate email messages to members of U.S. Congress on issues important to neuroscientists, such as protecting the use of animals in research or increasing federal funding for research. Members should enter their zip code to find representatives and use the message templates or create custom messages to communicate with elected leaders. This site also contains information on pending legislation in Congress, background information on policymakers, and election information for voters.
