Scientists’ March on Washington
Although this will start with a march, we hope to use this as a starting point to take a stand for science in politics. Slashing funding and restricting scientists from communicating their findings (from tax-funded research!) with the public is absurd and cannot be allowed to stand as policy. This is a non-partisan issue that reaches far beyond people in the STEM fields and should concern anyone who values empirical research and science.

existing content on the federal agency’s website, including details of
scientific evidence showing that the Earth’s climate is warming and
man-made carbon emissions are to blame.
