The Alliance for Space Development (ASD) is “dedicated to influencing space policy toward the goals of space development and settlement”. That means their primary mission is to influence space law in the United States.
The mission of ASD is:
- Reducing the cost of access to space.
- Stimulating and accelerating the growth of space industries.
- Making the development and settlement of space a clearly defined part of why we are sending humans into space.

The ASD doesn’t have activities and volunteer opportunities for individuals. You’ll need to be a member of one of their participating organizations.
The National Space Society and The Space Frontier Foundation are the founding member organizations. The Moon Society is is also a member. You can check out all the member organizations here.
This list isn’t comprehensive. It’s also not updated frequently so let us know if we need to add or change anything.
ASD’s two main volunteer activities revolve around educating politicians about specific space issues.
- March Storm
- This is the “premiere citizen-run space advocacy event of the year. From March 15th – 19th, join fellow space enthusiasts from around the country to advocate for the 2020 Citizens’ Space Agenda. Developed by the Alliance for Space Development, our policy points were developed by our member organizations including the National Space Society, Space Frontier Foundation, Students for the Exploration and Development of Space, and many others.”
- August Home District Blitz
- Similar to March Storm but volunteers talk to state and local politicians instead of federal.
Check with your organization if you are interested in volunteering in March Storm or August Home District Blitz. Currently, The Moon Society is not active in either of these events.
ASD does not have individual memberships or benefits for individuals.
