Many of you have probably seen a lot of news lately about marches being planned across the country. We have all witnessed the support that a great cause can rally when we watched as millions of women marched across the nation to force people to pay attention to what they had to say.
Another great cause has presented itself, and is steadily gaining support.
The March for Science is a public movement to show our leaders that we demand publicly communicated research and we deserve to know the results of research performed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other government agencies directly from those researchers.
Most of the planning for actual marching dates are still in the works but, like the women’s march, the march will be centered on Washington D.C., with “satellite marches” being planned and led across the country.
It’s alright if you can’t travel to Washington to show your support, you can start or join a march closer to home. Even if you don’t feel comfortable marching at all, there are other ways to show your support. Something as simple as a post on social media will help to spread the word and gain additional support for a cause that needs our support RIGHT NOW!
To be clear, this is not political and crosses all parties, genders, economic classes, and religious lines. This is an issue of protecting the rights that we hold dear as Americans and as human beings. This is about protecting the advancement of our society and standing with the people who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of science and the improvement of our lives.
