Scientists Speak Up

SSU is a student organization at Stanford University 🌲 working to enable students to identify and combat scientific misinformation


We teach students methods of framing conversations around politicized science topics that respect the other person’s existing values and strengthen connections with them.


We support each other to have those conversations by offering communication workshops, community discussions, and speaker series where we network with scientists to make a collective impact.
