One of the themes that came in the first two days was the importance of scientific organizations in advocacy. I'd like to explore this idea further. What exactly does advocacy entail? Do/Which groups have a presence in Washington? Are they meeting with lawmakers or lobbying for specific legislation? Do/Which groups focus on advocacy in the realm of public opinion and how do they accomplish this? How can members of these organizations take part in these advocacy related efforts?
