2017 Legislative Blitz

February 26th - 28th in Washington, D.C. (DATES TENTATIVE)


In 2004, a group of thirteen premier space advocacy groups joined together under the banner of the Space Exploration Alliance to have their voices heard.  The first SEA "Blitz" brought together 76 space enthusiasts from around the country. They converged on Washington, D.C., and talked with over 200 congressional offices in support of NASA and space exploration.

US Capitol buildingThe 2017 Legislative Blitz will come at a critical time, when our space program is expected to be at a crossroads both in terms of funding and direction. The  voices of the space advocacy community will need to be heard then as perhaps never before. The 2017 Legislative Blitz will call upon Congress to ensure that our nation’s space program is a compelling national priority.

Come join space advocates from around the country to let Congress know that there is strong constituent support for an ambitious space program. You will find this experience to be exciting and rewarding. 

There will be an information/training session on Sunday, February 26th, with materials for meetings on Monday, February 27th and Tuesday, February 28th.
