March for Science

On Earth Day, April 22nd, numerous Marches for Science will take place across the Unites States. “The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.” (marchforscience.com) Earlham will be sending folks to marches in Indianapolis and Washington, D.C.
