Wednesday-Thursday, March 28th-29th, there will be a user science exhibition on Capitol Hill (Senate event: 4:00 p.m. Wednesday in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room G50; House Event: 4:00 p.m. Thursday in the Cannon Caucus Room). This exhibition is sponsored by NUFO (National User Facilities Organization - the host of this email list) and Jefferson Lab will be represented with posters and by a member of UGBoD, Aidan Kelleher. NUFO is asking for our help to publicize this meeting - please contact your representative and/or senator and invite them to attend this event. Obviously, showcasing science, and in particular user facilities like Jefferson Lab, to lawmakers is more urgent than ever.
If you wish, you may use the following generic script provided by NUFO for your phone call/email:
