Join the Effort to Strengthen Society through Sociology

Renew your membership in the American Sociological Association (ASA) in the interest of supporting our discipline.  ASA’s mission includes not only serving sociologists in their work, but also advancing sociology as a science and profession and promoting the contributions and use of sociology to society.  Your membership not only benefits you directly, but also supports our broader efforts to advance the discipline.  We advocate for policies that impact the ability of sociologists to do their work effectively.  This includes efforts to ensure strong funding for the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and other federal supporters of sociological scholarship and teaching enhancement efforts.  ASA is also a leader in bringing sociological scholarship to a public audience for a variety of purposes. Our media outreach brings research findings to people for whom it can inform personal, professional, and civic activity.  And our work with Congress and the Supreme Court has been used to inform public policy
