Denver March for Science is a grassroots, all volunteer organization, meant as a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy suggestions and 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 countless people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue is a critical and urgent matter, one that too often has given policymakers cover to reject overwhelming evidence. The March for Science – while non-partisan – is openly political in its call for peer-reviewed evidence based policy. Now is the time for people who support scientific research, science education, and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
