In 2017, more than one million people around the world gathered to defend science for the common good and its role in policy and society. Since then, science has continued to face increasing threats at the federal, state, and local levels.
But science will not be silenced - and it’s time to unite again. This year, let’s come together to send a message: we will hold our elected and appointed officials responsible for enacting equitable, evidence-based policies that serve all communities.
Let’s use our collective voices to send a powerful message to policymakers and those running for office in 2018 - over the phone, at town halls and community meetings, and at the ballot box. We march for many reasons, but unite to defend science -- because science belongs to us all.
