March for Science to take place downtown April 22

Spokane will host the first March for Science on Earth Day, April 22, from 1-5 p.m. at the Riverfront Park Clock Tower.

The march’s mission states that it supports “robustly funded and publically communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity.” Its goals are to humanize science, partner with the public, advocate for inclusive and accessible science, support scientists, and affirm science as a democratic value.

Marches will take place throughout the U.S. on April 22, including one in Washington D.C., in response to what is often seen as the Trump administration’s “anti-science stance,” and skepticism about global warming and evolution, according to “The Guardian.”

More information can be found on the March for Science – Spokane page on Facebook, and visit the March for Science website to purchase merchandise or donate to the cause.

I’ll be there. Science is critical to our future, both in the public understanding of it, and the open independent pursuit of it by scientists not pressured by political or ideological forces. The stakes could not be higher in the Trumplandia Era.
