AMS Grassroots Advocacy Network



The American Mathematical Society's Grassroots Advocacy Network seeks to increase federal funding for basic scientific research and education in the USA.  The network's Grassroots Leaders are kept abreast of critical scientific funding issues and are encouraged to build relationships with their Congressional representatives in an effort to convey the importance of significant federal research investment to U.S. competitiveness and technological innovation.
