This week saw crucial discussions around climate justice, with testimony at the House Committee on Natural Resources and the release of an outline for the Green New Deal, as well as around voting rights with Stacey Abrams’ response to the State of the Union. These conversations continue to invigorate our work as we imagine bold solutions to building a more just and equitable scientific enterprise, while drawing from a base of evidence to implement them. Together, we’ll continue to do better!
