Today’s political environment bears witness to unprecedented attacks on truth, science, and our planet. This Earth Day, April 22nd, we march to affirm that:
– public funding for scientific research is a social good
– climate change is real
– environmental abuses are human rights abuses
– scientific truths are not subject to political manipulation
– scientists MUST engage with government to support these truths
Bring your lab coats! Bring your rally signs! We gather together to defend our planet and our institutions through civic engagement and sustained political action at local, state, and federal levels.
Please note: This event is in the evening, so it will be possible to support both this march and other marches for science in San Francisco or Sacramento, or to participate in UC Berkeley’s Cal Day. We support ALL efforts to promote Earth rights and science literacy on this important day, and we want all to have the opportunity to fully participate!
