Science and fact-based scientific research is under attack by Republicans at all levels of government. The national scientific community is asking the public for support. There will be national Science Marches in cities all across the country tomorrow.
Here’s the stated mission of the Science March: “The March for Science champions publicly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.”
You can show that you support science by attending one of the Science Marches in Iowa this Saturday, April 22nd. There are Science Marches planned in these Iowa cities: Cedar Falls, Davenport, Des Moines, Iowa City, Independence, Mason City and Tipton. For specific information on the locations and times, go to Science, Not Silence. The Des Moines March is scheduled for noon at the Iowa State Capitol.
