AAAS and AIP Sign On Letters Supporting Science

A brief, but important (and time sensitive) message regarding two sign on letters supporting science. Both letters are available to be read, and add your society's name from the links below. Please reach out to either the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) or the American Institute of Physics (AIP) for additional information, if needed.

AAAS response to the EPA supplemental ‘Secret Science’ Strengthening Transparency Rule

As you may know, the EPA has issued a supplement to the ‘Secret Science’ Strengthening Transparency Rule. AAAS has written the attached comments of concern which we plan to post to the federal register on the EPA deadline of May 18th. We are circulating these comments among our societies and it would strengthen our submission to get as much support as possible to show the EPA the broad coalition of those with the scientific, university and health communities that are concerned about this proposal. The final letter can be found here.

Please direct any questions to Sean Gallagher of AAAS at [email protected].

AIP Sign on letter re: Executive Order restricting immigration

Thank you for taking the time to consider signing on to AIP’s Member Society community’s response to the recent Executive Order (EO) restricting immigration. Attached and available below, through the link to a Google form, is a multi-organization sign-on letter for your organization’s potential endorsement. While the April 20, 2020 EO has a 60 day term and was written to address “the impact of foreign workers on the United States labor market,” this letter addresses the issue strategically, stressing the negative impacts of immigration restrictions in general on an already stressed scientific enterprise.

To add your organization’s name to the list of endorsers, please use this form:, a copy of the letter is also available there. Owing to the consensus endorsement process AIP adheres to with our Member Societies (which is in its final stage), we cannot entertain amendments to the text of the letter.

Please feel free to email AIP’s Jennifer Greenamoyer ([email protected]) with any questions. The deadline for sign on is May 19, 2020.
