The mission of Milwaukee Area Science Advocates (MASA) is to increase scientific enthusiasm, understanding, and legislative value in the Milwaukee area. We strive to engage the community in evidence-based programs, promote awareness of local scientific affairs, and collaborate with diverse partners to positively influence public opinion in the areas of Science Education, Public Health, and Sustainability. MASA fulfills this mission through the following activities:
- Coordinating with local educational institutions to develop science-related events and workshops for children and adults.
- Providing science-related media content in an accessible format to improve scientific literacy and comprehension.
- Promoting the community science events of other local organizations to engage a wider audience and further supporting these organizations through collaboration in shared spaces.
- Highlighting the national and local impact of science-related public policy and educating the Milwaukee community about the utility of science to inform legislation.
