March for Science - Denver Supporter Statement

We, the undersigned, affirm our support for the March for Science - Denver. We agree with the position underlying the March's mission and goals:

  • that robustly funded and publicly communicated science is a pillar of human freedom and prosperity
  • good science informs good public policy, regardless of political party or philosophy of government
  • a diverse and inclusive scientific community asks a broader range of questions and rewards us with a greater understanding of our world.

As such, we commit to and call for public support of science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.
