Recent policy developments in both the United States and elsewhere have sparked significant concern within the HCI research community. Predominantly, increasing isolationism can have a serious impact on collaboration, community engagement and wellness, and knowledge sharing. Policy shifts also have the potential to affect freedom of scientific inquiry, the free flow of information, and funding for computing research. Moreover, what can SIGCHI as an organization do to best support the community under current conditions? In this panel discussion, designed to be heavily participatory, we will take on these issues and discuss what we can do to support our strong, diverse community of researchers.
