The Space Exploration Alliance (SEA), a broad and influential network of major space advocacy groups, including the Mars Society, the Planetary Society, the National Space Society and Explore Mars, will be organizing its annual Legislative Blitz running February 25th thru 27th in Washington, D.C.
The March-on-Capitol Hill event will allow dozens of space advocates from across the country to meet with members of Congress and their staff in order to emphasize the continuing strong bipartisan support for the U.S. space program and the goal of an expanded human presence in the solar system.
In preparation for the grass-roots Legislative Blitz, SEA staff members will hold an information-training session for registered participants on Sunday, February 25th, while scheduled meetings with congressional offices on Capitol Hill will occur on Monday, February 26th and Tuesday, February 27th.
“As one of the founding members of the SEA campaign, the Mars Society and its membership look forward to playing a lead role in advocating for a space exploration program that includes a clear direction and sustainable funding by Congress, with the goal of human Mars exploration,” said Michael Stoltz, Mars Society Director of Media & Public Relations.
