March For Science – Appleton,WI
We’ll be meeting on April 22, 2017 (Earth Day) at 3:00 p.m. on the steps of Lawrence University Chapel in Appleton, WI. After a few speeches, we’ll march down to the corner of College Ave. and Appleton St. (Houdini Plaza) and spread out to rally on the sidewalks until about 5:00 p.m.
Wear green for solidarity! Bring your signs! Bring some chant ideas! Bring your enthusiasm for science!
The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. 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.
