peg dolls march for science



The MARCH FOR SCIENCE will occur on April 22nd, 2017 on the National Mall in Washington DC and in over 425 other locations world wide.  I cannot be there in person, but my dolls and I stand in solidarity.  The information below is excerpted from the MARCH FOR SCIENCE website:

WHY
Science, scientists, and evidence-based policymaking are under attack. Budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets, and threats to dismantle government agencies harm us all, putting our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs at risk. It is time for people who support science to take a public stand and be counted.

WHAT
The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.

HOW
We are building a broad, nonpartisan, and diverse coalition of organizations and individuals who stand up for science. We are advocating for evidence-based policymaking, science education, research funding, and inclusive and accessible science. All with your support!

WHO
People who value science. Science advocates, science educators, scientists, and concerned citizens. More than 170 partner organizations and counting. And you!

WHERE
The National Mall in Washington, DC and 425+ satellite marches around the world. For DC, event details here, and info on buses here.

  1. That's a sweet little protest there and very meaningful. Science does matter.
