March for Science with WPSR on April 22nd
Who would have thought that in 2017, we would have to defend science?
We know how critical scientific information is for developing good policies. And yet, science and scientists are under attack. Budget cuts, the rise of “alternative facts”, and other recent events threaten our environment and our security. That is why WPSR has endorsed the March for Science.
WPSR will march for health, science, and evidenced-based policy-making on Saturday, April 22nd. Please join us! Click here to RSVP to march with our contingent.
Date: Saturday, April 22, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM (program begins at 10:00 AM, march at 12:00 PM)
Start: Cal Anderson Park (1635 11th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122)
End: Seattle Center (400 Broad St, Seattle, WA 98109)
WPSR members will be meeting at Cafe Solstice (925 E Thomas St, Seattle, WA 98102) at 9:30 AM before walking together to the park. Look for the WPSR banner!
If you're interested in marching with us, please fill out this form so we know who to expect.
We will be making some signs to carry, but please feel free to bring your own signs, and even a white coat if you have one – to show that health professionals support this movement.
More information on the March for Science can be found on their website here. Please let us know if you have any questions, and we look forward to seeing you there!
The Paris Climate Agreement puts the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change. Tell President Trump that leaving the accord puts polluters' interests before our health and welfare.
President Trump, his new EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, and some in Congress are attempting to block or weaken clean air and climate protections like the Clean Power Plan. Tell your member of Congress to support full implementation of the Clean Air Act and the Clean Power Plan.
