PUT IT N YOUR CALENDAR!

On April 22, scientists throughout the world will be marching in support of science, in Washington DC and in satellite Marches throughout the globe.  Find a March near you if you want to participate.

Whether you attend the March for Science or not, you can communicate the value of your science beyond the scientific community during the week following the march (April 24-31), which is dedicated to outreach and sharing science locally.  For ideas on how to engage a wider audience, the following website offers some resources.

We encourage our memberships to participate in this march or in other activities that communicate the importance of science.  As scientific societies, we need to be vocal about the value of scientific research and the importance of applying scientific evidence in policy and practice.  
Let’s get ready for a good showing!
