Support 314 Action, a nonprofit that helps get people with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) backgrounds elected to office, and advocates for laws founded on solid science and evidence-based reasoning.
One of the most obnoxious and infuriating aspects of Trump’s election, and of the modern Republican party, is its aggressive contempt for science and reason. 314 Action exists to combat that. (Yes, 314 is a reference to Pi.) It aims to get people with STEM experience elected to Congress, it supports laws that reflect and respect scientific knowledge. 314 Action also calls out members of Congress and high-ranking officials who undermine or flout the facts.
