The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
On Saturday, April 22nd, scientists and supporters will take to the streets in Washington DC to protest politicization of science.
Advancing Science and Policy will be organizing transportation and helping to coordinate housing for graduate students and post-docs interested in attending the march on April 22nd.
Engaged graduate students and post-docs are also invited to join us Friday afternoon for visits with Congressional staffers and policy makers in Washington.
