HEP Advocacy Trip to Washington D.C.

The DC trip is an opportunity for members of the HEP community to speak directly to congress and voice our support and requests for well-funded physics research in the US. The expected dates for the CY24 dates are March/April 2024.

Please get in touch with Caterina Vernieri and Kelly Stifter if any question or if you are interested in participating.
