During a Science Policy Group meeting last fall, Deborah Moore (Western States Senior Campaign Manager at the Union of Concerned Scientists) led a workshop on science advocacy and communication. Goals of the meeting included:

  • learning the key elements of a good policy brief
  • highlighting considerations that go into the style, tone, and audience of writing a policy memo
  • practicing how to write a policy brief
  • pointing out resources for understanding the current policy situation
