The event organizers have decided to postpone NP D.C. Day until later this year due to an abundance of caution related to the COVID-19 emergency communities across the country are facing. In addition to college campuses closing and governors and mayors around the country asking that large meetings/events be curtailed, the U.S. Capitol Complex has also been closed to all non-essential business until April 1st.This includes the House and Senate office buildings we would need to access for our Hill meetings. Many Congressional offices have also asked their staffs to telecommute for a period of time over the next several weeks making in-person meetings a challenge.
While our physical advocacy has been postponed for the time being, the federal appropriations process continues! As such we will be following-up with you regarding alternative outreach options to get your message of support for nuclear physics to your elected representatives.
Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time and you will be hearing more from us soon. And of course please take care.
