3.14 Action

We are the only organization in the nation focused on recruiting, training, and electing Democrats with a background in science to public office.

We start by identifying leaders with science backgrounds who would make strong candidates and be champions for pro-science policies in elected office. We then recruit these candidates – from local races to the U.S. Senate – to run for office and then provide game-changing support.

Throughout the course of the campaign, we provide training, strategic help, and direct support to candidates and staff — and through our growing pro-science network, we organize the science community to support these candidates with the resources they need to be competitive.

We recognize that electoral politics is part qualitative and part quantitative. With this in mind, our team bases financial support and endorsement of our candidates on the strength of the candidate, campaign operation, and message, as well as the incumbent’s profile and projected trends in the district.

Bottom line: when candidates run on their science credentials and have the backing to get their message out there, they win. We’re fighting to elect scientists who can tackle urgent shared challenges – like the climate crisis, reproductive rights, and healthcare access –  and secure a better future for us all.
