Advocacy Training Webinar to Take Place September 21
This fall, APA is partnering with the Federation of Associations in Behavioral and Brain Sciences (FABBS) in a District Science Lobby Week to get interested scientists involved in advocacy efforts on behalf of the sciences of psychology, mind, brain, and behavior.
As part of this effort, the two organizations will be hosting a 1-hour webinar, titled “APA-FABBS Science Advocacy Training,” on September 21, 2012 from 3-4 p.m. EST.
In recent weeks, a number of U.S. House and Senate members have been critical of the National Science Foundation, especially the agency’s funding of research in the social sciences. One Senator specifically called for the elimination of the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Directorate at NSF.
