Evidence for Democracy is a national, non-partisan organization advocating for the use of evidence-based decision-making in public policy. E4D launches a number of education and advocacy campaigns, as well as supports those of partner organizations. Central to the success of our education and advocacy work is distributing clear, easy-to-understand and eye-catching visuals meant to share information quickly. We are currently looking for a dedicated volunteer to assist in the development of infographics, web graphics, and other materials for education and promotion. This requires intermediate webdesign skills using the program of the artist’s choice (ie: Illustrator, Inkscape, Easel.ly, Infogr.am, etc.)

A few days ago we posted a letter from concerned citizens in Kenora to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, Minister of the Environment, and the Minister of State for Science and Technology regarding the closure of many federal science libraries across the country. You can find that post and the letter here.
