The Delaware March for Science and Our Earth will be held in Newark, Delaware on April 22, 2017. This March is a satellite march for the March for Science being held in Washington, DC. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark will be the starting point.
The Delaware March for Science and Our Earth, and the events surrounding the march are meant to focus on our love of science, critical thinking, and our earth. This march demonstrates our passion for science and the environment and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community and our Earth. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted. The acceleration of climate change and the elimination of environmental protections make this a critical time in our history.
We are a people who value science and our Earth and recognize how science serves. We come from all races, all religions, all genders identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone. The relationship between science and democracy must not continue to erode. The application of science to society is not divorced from politics.
All are welcome to attend!
Like Science and Mother Earth, these are non-partisan events.
