I hope many GRAF members will be interested in joining the March for Science in Grand Rapids on April 22nd.
This is info about the event taken from the organizer’s Facebook page(which can be viewed by Googling it even if you are not on Facebook, like me):
We will meet at KAXE at 11 am to make signs and gather before the march. We will then walk to 169 and head North, go West on Hwy 2 and North at 38 to the High School where we will hear speakers, eat food, and mingle with people who share our passion for science!
The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. 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.
ON APRIL 22, 2017, WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS.
