WASHINGTON, DC: In 2004, a group of citizen from around the country gathered in Washington DC to go to over 200 congressional offices in support of the Vision for Space Exploration. This group was part of the Space Exploration Alliance that represents over 100,000 space advocates. The Vision is now in danger and needs your help. We will be going to the Hill just a few days before the final budget is out of the appropriations committee. Our appearance and show of support for the Vision is critical to make sure that NASA does not have a budget cut.

We currently have over 100 meetings scheduled with congressional staff members and need your support to help us meet with as many more as possible. Please join us to make sure that the Vision is full funded and NASA continues its efforts to reach Moon, Mars and Beyond.

The schedule for the event will be a training session on Sunday, June 10 at the Best Western Pentagon City and meetings with congressional members and staff on June 11 and 12.

We need your help to make sure America’s space future is secure for generations to come. Please register now. You can also click here to visit the Blitz website
