Science is being mis-characterized as a partisan issue and it has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, undermining the rigorous standards of research conducted by the scientific community. This is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people and organizations who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to make your priorities known, pressure lawmakers to vote against ravaging budget cut proposals, support the staff of threatened organizations, and further science education and funding for students.
On Saturday, April 22, 2017, the March for Science will bring together passionate supporters to walk the streets in D.C. and at sister marches in Burlington, Montpelier, Rutland and Brattleboro! See details on Burlington below and more on the other locations on the March for Science Vermont website.
