“Democracy is not something you believe in or a place to hang your hat. But it’s something you do. You participate. If you stop doing it, democracy crumbles.” - Abbie Hoffman
Chemistry plays a key role in scientific innovation and advancement in society, both inside and outside the lab. You can use your chemical knowledge and expertise to communicate science that affects policies impacting humanity’s greatest challenges, from climate change to deadly pandemics to the future of energy, so that leaders understand the relevant data and can make informed decisions.
