Tomorrow, Earth Day, the March for Science will be held in Washington, D.C. Other marches are planned for hundreds of cities around the world.
The organizers’ mission statement reads: “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.”
Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, one of the heroes in uncovering the Flint water crisis, will be in Washington for the March for Science. She spoke to Stateside’s Lester Graham about the march.
