I/we affirm our support for the Denver March for Science and agree with the position underlying the March’s mission and goals:
– 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.
– Equitable access to science and science education is critical to individual autonomy, an informed citizenry, a vibrant economy, and to best prepare future generations to thrive in an increasingly inter-connected world.
As such, I/we commit to and call for public support of science education, scientific research, and science as an institution that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.
