March for Science San Francisco
April 22, 2017
San Francisco, California
On April 22nd, join SF Bay Area PSR to fight back against the Trump Administration’s attacks on science – join us at the March for Science!
The value and practice of science-based decisions within our public policy realm has never been more threatened or derided than it is now. Both the president and the leaders of Congress have fully rejected the irrefutable proof of the current effects and coming realities of global warming. Science-based research has been scrubbed from the websites of agencies such as the EPA and the USDA and a gag order has been placed on government scientists from not only those agencies but NIH and DHS as well. Relevant social media accounts, tools for communicating to us all, have been silenced.
Also under threat is funding for essential research and programs focused on environmental and human health. This has halted projects in mid-stream and prevented new efforts whose research and implementation undoubtedly would have had significant benefits for our personal and planetary health. Many of the programs slated for cuts would imperil the health of our most vulnerable populations, including clean air programs that seek to counteract higher asthma rates for people of color, the cleaning up of brownfields in impoverished neighborhoods, and programs to ensure involvement of people of color in the green job sector and more.
It’s time to fight back! Please join us at one or both of the following events!
First, we will be joining UCSF leaders at a teach-in, at which faculty members who have pursued research that was at times pushing the boundaries will be featured.
For more information and to RSVP, please go here!
Where: Byers Auditorium, Genentech at 600 16th Street
Following the Teach-In, we will march to Justin Herman Plaza.
Where: Starting at Genentech at the conclusion of the UCSF rally, then continuing to Justin Herman Plaza. Look for us in white coats, and please wear one if you have one!
At Justin Herman Plaza, starting at 11:00 am, invited speakers will be kicking things off. We will then march to Civic Center Plaza at 12:30, ending with a fair celebrating science and its immeasurable benefits to human progress.
