Science has long had a role in informing the development of new policies and regulations, as well as the implementation or enforcement of existing ones. However, focus is too often given to informing federal policy, leaving science underrepresented in local policy decisions affecting communities. In this American Geophysical Union (AGU)-ESAL session at the 2022 Fall Meeting, hear from and engage with a panel of scientists and community leaders who will discuss their experiences working to address community challenges through policy solutions that include science and provide lessons learned from different pathways for scientists to make a difference in their own community. All levels of interest and experience are invited.
