What is the Scientist's March on Washington?
Welcome!..We want to thank you all for your incredible outpouring of support for this march...We are working to schedule a March for Science on D.C. and across the United States...We have not settled on a date yet, but will do so as quickly as possible and announce it here.
Although this will sart with a march, we hope to use this as a starting point to take a stand for science in politics....Slashing funding and restricting scientists from communicating their findings (from tax-funded research) with the public is absurd and cannot be allowed to stand as policy...This is a non-partisan issue that reaches far beyond people in the STEM fields and should concern anyone who believes in empirical research and science.
There are certain things that we accept as facts with no alternatives....The Earth is becoming warmer due to human action...The diversity of life arose by evolution...Politicians who devalue expertise risk making decisions that do not reflect reality and must be held accountable....An American government that ignores science to pursue ideological agendas endangers the world.
Please bear with us as we pull together our mission statement and further details.
Many more updates to come
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
ANYONE WHO BELIEVES IN EMPIRICAL SCIENCE...THAT'S IT...THAT'S THE ONLY REQUIREMENT.
