CCEW Advocacy Opportunity

As one of the largest scientific organizations in the world, ACS regularly engages the Executive Branch and U.S. Congress to encourage legislation and policies that advance chemistry and STEM education. ACS advocates for strong funding for scientific research, strengthening of STEM education at all levels, sustainable chemistry practices, and much more. However, ACS cannot do it alone. It needs the voices of constituents to emphasize the importance of science, and more specifically chemistry!

As part of Chemists Celebrate Earth Week 2022, ACS is encouraging chemists and chemistry enthusiasts to engage by contacting their members of Congress in support of climate change legislation.  ACS makes engagement easy through resources including: how to find your members of Congress, scripts for your call, links to email you can send in minutes, and information on the chemistry issues up for consideration in Congress now. You can stay updates on these issues and opportunities by signing up for Act4Chemistry. You can also learn more about how to advocate, and sign up for the free and on-demand ACS Chemistry Advocacy Workshop

Below you will find a list of legislative bills currently up for consideration in Congress. You will find the number and name, a description, and a link if you wish to email.

  1. H.R. 1512, The Climate Leadership and Environmental Action for our Nation’s Future (the CLEAN Future) Act – boosts investment in clean, sustainable domestic energy resources
  2. H.R. 2307, The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2021 – assigns a price to carbon emissions and returns revenue to the American public
  3. S. 3531, The National Climate Adaptation and Resilience Strategy Act – creates a Chief Resilience Officer position within the Executive Office of the President to coordinate climate adaptation across the federal government

Another idea to spread the word...
plan a networking happy hour!

Host trivia or a contest over live video conferencing, and invite your friends and others to chat about chemistry.
