California Life Sciences Association (CLSA) today announced their new Digital Advocacy Center. This innovative platform will harness the organization’s broad membership to engage on key legislation and public policies and help grow California’s life sciences sector.

CLSA’s “Take Action” digital advocacy tool helps CLSA members contact state and federal lawmakers to make their voices heard. Members can support life sciences priorities by sending letters, posting messages on Twitter or Facebook or using phone scripts to directly contact lawmakers. The new center also lets stakeholders view priority legislation, sign up for advocacy messages and alerts, lookup their elected officials and more.

As CLSA continues to build strong ties in Sacramento, Washington and in municipalities throughout California, it is critical that policymakers understand the contributions innovative life scientists and CLSA member companies make to improved patient
care. This new resource will help CLSA shape federal, state and local policies that support life sciences research, investment and innovation in California.
