Advocating for research funding – Evidence for Democracy – CSMB collaboration

The CSMB is collaborating with Evidence for Democracy – E4D to ensure that all CSMB members have tools to help them understand the importance of science-informed policy making and to connect with their elected representatives.
E4D has prepared two very useful documents on how to connect with your representative (Connecting with Reps – Toolkit), and a specific brief for the 2019 elections (2019_Federal_Election_Brief).  We invite you to read both documents, and also to view a training webinar CSMB organized with E4D in September 2018 – below.
Stay connected to CSMB for more materials to come from E4D later in the summer relating to connecting directly with candidates.
