This is what we focus on and how we do it.


Together with our members, The Planetary Society is the world's most influential independent space advocacy group. Our priorities reflect the passions of our global membership: planetary exploration, advancing the search for life, and planetary defense from near-Earth objects.

Our dedicated policy staff advocate every day to lawmakers, space agency leadership, and other key decision-makers around the world. Our U.S. members do their part by taking action online and advocating directly to their members of Congress in Washington, D.C. during our annual Day of Action. While the details change, our themes remain the same.
