Description: Last month the White House proposed across the board cuts for science granting agencies. Congress must increase spending caps otherwise these cuts will happen. ResearchAmerica is leading a campaign to #RaisetheCaps. In this context, SPAR is hosting a writing workshop empowering Rutgers scientists to participate in this campaign through writing. We will focus on the best ways to communicate via: (1) Writing a short 1 page documents for meeting with policymakers (2) Phone calls, letters, emails, and social media posts targeting congressional offices
