This weekend, scientists and other defenders of truth, facts and Mother Earth will gather in cities across the country for the March for Science.
It’s predicted to be the biggest outpouring of support for our shared American values since January’s Women’s March, which itself was the starting point for a massive grassroots movement that has swamped town halls across the country.
Saturday’s March for Science is another opportunity to turn activism into action — including supporting elected officials who believe in science:
- Chip in $5 to each of our climate change champions, four House Members and two Senators (including the newest members of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto and Tammy Duckworth) who have made protecting our planet a priority.
- Chip in $5 to each of our STEM supporters, five House Members — including Rep. Louise Slaughter, the only microbiologist in Congress — whose legislative focus on science, technology, engineering and math education stands out.
From the rise of “alternative facts” and “fake news” to the Trump Administration’s threats to de-fund NIH and pull the US out of the Paris Climate Agreement, science and reason are under threat like never before, and we must step up now.
That means keeping our climate change champions and supporters of STEM education in Congress.
Chip in now:
