MARCH FOR SCIENCE — Listen to Evidence —
On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2017, scientists will walk out of the lab and into the streets for the March for Science. The march will take place in Washington DC, as well as 100’s of satellite locations around the country and the world. Their website explains:
“It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.”
“The March for Science is a celebration of science. It’s not only about scientists and politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world. Nevertheless, the march has generated a great deal of conversation around whether or not scientists should involve themselves in politics. In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, we might ask instead: can we afford not to speak out in its defense?”
