Sunday, 16 February 2014
Regency B (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
Galen Carey , National Association of Evangelicals, Washington, DC
Galen Carey serves as the vice president for government relations for the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), a partnering organization for this survey project. For the AAAS, the responses of evangelical Christians in this national survey are of paramount importance. AAAS advisory committees have urged the AAAS to focus on building dialogue with evangelicals, because they make up roughly 30% of the U.S. population and have a strong interest and influence in public policy. Mr. Carey will discuss the unique perceptions of scientists and concerns regarding science amongst evangelicals as revealed by the survey, as well as next steps in engaging this community.
