Dear Valued SoCalBio Member:

I wanted to take a moment to let you know about a new effort that our partner, the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), is launching as part of a coordinated state and federal advocacy efforts. It is called BIO ACTION 2017, which designed to educate policymakers about the potential of biotechnology in healing, fueling and feeding the world. This potential has never been more promising. Yet, at the same time, some policymakers in Washington, D.C., and in California are proposing ideas that could grind innovation to a halt. That is why BIO is launching BIO ACTION. This advocacy program will keep you informed of emerging policy issues and threats to biotechnology innovation. BIO ACTION will ask for your voice when needed to encourage lawmakers to enact policies to further innovation and stop harmful policies from passing. We know you care about the future of biotechnology from your past support of SoCalBio. But now we need your help – and your voice – more than ever before. To learn about some of the issues BIO ACTION will be actively working on, please visit the BIO ACTION advocacy portal at Bio Action. Here you can also find the new BIO ACTION online tool that makes it easy for you to contact your federal, state and local public officials. Our voices must be HEARD - lend yours to help biotechnology heal, fuel and feed the world! Please take a moment and help make the biotech industry’s voice heard – join BIO ACTION!

Sincerely,

Ahmed
