March For Science: Ann Arbor

The Diag
Ann Arbor, MI 48109
United States
April 22, 2017,
3:00 pm to 6:00 pm

We will start on the Diag at 12, leave the Diag at about 12:45pm. Estimated end time of 2pm, depending on crowd. The exact route will be announced closer to the date.

Sister march of the national March for Science.

Although this will start with a march, we hope to use this as a starting point to take a stand for science in politics. Slashing funding and restricting scientists from communicating their findings (from tax-funded research!) with the public is absurd and cannot be allowed to stand as policy. This is a non-partisan issue that reaches far beyond people in the STEM fields and should concern anyone who values empirical research and science. 

There are certain things that we accept as facts with no alternatives. The Earth is becoming warmer due to human action. The diversity of life arose by evolution. Politicians who devalue expertise risk making decisions that do not reflect reality and must be held accountable. An American government that ignores science to pursue ideological agendas endangers the world.
