Science Advocacy of Long Island (SALI) brings together scientists and supporters of science from all backgrounds to advocate for scientific education and legislation.
We've compiled a list of reputable resources on various topics you've asked about: Citizen Science, Climate Change, Genetics and Evolution, Genetic Engineering, Food, and Farming, Health and Disease, Physics, Radiofrequency, and Vaccines.
We've also compiled resources for kids, as well as books, podcasts, and general items of interest.
We'll continue to edit and expand these resources as needed. Click on the button below to access the resources.

The first of many forums created by Science Advocacy Long Island (SALI) to encourage public engagement with science.
Most Americans are not aware that there are 7,000 rare diseases affecting 30 million people. National Organization for Rare Disorders, Inc. (NORD), the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals with rare diseases, is launching a new initiative called, the "7,000 Mile Rare Movement."
The movement challenges Americans to walk, run or bike 7,000 miles collectively from Feb. 1 through the end of the month, culminating on Rare Disease Day, Feb. 28.
The 7,000 miles represent the 7,000 known rare diseases, most of which are life-altering and do not yet have a treatment or cure.
Proceeds from the 7,000 Mile Rare Movement will support research grants, patient services, education and more for the millions suffering from rare diseases in America.
Participants can collect pledge donations toward reaching their goal at: https://pledgeit.org/give/nord
Each month we highlight a scientist from the community. Our Scientist of the Month for February 2018 is Rebecca Garcia, Lecturer in the Undergraduate Biology Program, Stony Brook University.
