FAS’ Day One Project never stops looking for the best new science and tech policy ideas, and we’ve just announced a new ideas-collecting sprint.  From now until November 18th, we’re identifying the priorities we should be pushing hard on in the coming calendar year across a new Congress and the Administration —and we want to make sure we’ve got a range of voices in the mix.

IF YOU HAVE A SUGGESTED POLICY PRIORITY, YOU CAN SUBMIT VIA OUR STREAMLINED INTAKE FORM! We invite you to share the opportunity around your networks. >>
