There are only TWO competitive special elections for Congress this year and we have two incredible Democratic scientists running in both the Texas and New Mexico special elections. BUT: Early voting is already underway in Texas and about to begin in New Mexico. Please, rush in a donation toward our Special Election Fund to power Melanie Stansbury and Shawn Lassiter to VICTORY in these special elections.
Our mission is unique: to recruit, train, and elect scientists and other Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) leaders to public office. Since 2016, with nationwide grassroots-driven support, we’ve helped elect ten scientists to the U.S. House of Representatives, three to the U.S. Senate, and more than 100 others to state and local offices across the country.
Now, we’re gearing up to protect pro-science majorities in both chambers of Congress and build a pipeline of STEM leaders at the state and local levels.Learn More
