The Space Exploration Alliance (SEA) will be holding its annual grassroots visit to Congress, known as the "Legislative Blitz", in Washington, D.C. from Sunday, February 26 to Tuesday, February 28, 2017. With unprecedented budgetary pressures facing the legislative and executive branches of government, it is uncertain which path our nation’s leaders will take with respect to our nation’s space program. More than ever before, it is absolutely critical that the voices of the space advocacy community be heard in this debate. Come join space advocates from around the country to let Congress know that there is strong constituent support for an ambitious space program.
There will be an information/training session for all registered "blitzers" on the afternoon of Sunday, February 26th (from 2:00 p.m. to approximately 5:30 p.m.), and there will also be an optional introductory session for newcomers that same morning (from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.), in preparation for meetings on Monday, February 27th and Tuesday, February 28th.
The Space Exploration Alliance is a collaboration of leading non-profit organizations that advocate for the exploration and development of outer space, including the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Explore Mars, Inc., Federation of Galaxy Explorers, Moon Society, The Mars Society, National Society of Black Engineers, National Space Society, The Planetary Society, Buzz Aldrin's ShareSpace Foundation, and Students for the Exploration and Development of Space.
