5) MARCH FOR SCIENCE

April 22, 2017

The March for Science is a celebration of science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. The characterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject evidence, is a critical matter. This is an opportunity for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
