Action Day 2024 was a great success. On Monday, April 29, nearly 100 members of the Planetary Society gathered in Washington, DC, as part of our Annual Day of Action. These advocates (pictured) traveled from across the United States to push for more funding and better support for the country's pioneering space science program. In addition to in-person meetings, nearly 100 advocates from 19 states and the District of Columbia sent letters and made calls to their legislators in support of the Day of Action's key advocacy messages.
