Take Action

Don't be a bystander for planetary exploration. Be an advocate.

Space exploration doesn't just happen. It requires consistent and vigilant support by the public. Be a space advocate and reach out to your representatives in the House and Senate, or contact the President of the United States.

First, ensure that you are registered to vote in your district.

Then, take a minute to write to your Congressional representatives. Use the links below to use our convenient letter-writing tool that will send it to the right people.

Tell Congress to invest in planetary defense
Luck is not a plan. Support public investment to find, characterize, and deflect potentially dangerous near Earth asteroids and other objects. Contact your members of Congress and tell them that planetary defense is important to you.
Ask your legislators to join the Planetary Science Caucus
There's a congressional congress for planetary exploration—and any member of Congress can join. Use this form to write your representatives to encourage them to be part of it and help promote space science.

It doesn't stop at writing a letter! Make sure to take the crucial follow-up steps and call your representatives' offices, schedule visits, or write opinion pieces in your local paper. Change starts one person at a time.

For those ultimate space advocates, we organize annual visits to Washington, D.C. to advocate to Congress directly. Join us.

Note: we can no longer provide advocacy petitions for individuals outside of the United States due to restrictions imposed by the European Union's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Take the Next Step

Call Congress

A personal phone call to your representative's office is a crucial component to a successful political effort.
