March for Science

 

marchforscienceKnox County will be joining with over 500 other locations in the U.S. and around the world in the March for Science on April 22.  Join us at 12:30 PM on Mount Vernon’s Public Square or attend one of 12 other Ohio events.

The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

Some of the principles of the March for Science are

  • Science that serves the common good
  • Evidence-based policy and regulation in the common interest
  • Open honest science and inclusive public outreach
  • Funding for scientific research and its public applications

The central march will be held in Washington D.C.  Information about other marches in Ohio can be found at https://www.marchforscience.com/satellite-marches/?state=Ohio
