The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments, according to the organizers. The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. https://www.marchforscience.com https://www.facebook.com/marchforscience
These marches, planned globally, will see 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, the organizers state.
IOC is a nonpartisan group, based in Oak Cliff, Texas, dedicated to pressuring our elected representatives to oppose or influence actions and policies that are counter to our core beliefs: inclusiveness, the freedoms codified in the Constitution, respect for human rights and dignity, and the peace and well-being of future generations.
IOC is taking a stand against policies that endanger the basic rights and physical safety of Americans and threaten the fabric of our democracy. We are committed to defending our rights, our neighbors, and our democratic process by speaking out at the national, state, and local levels. We will raise our voices respectfully, yet resolutely, so elected officials hear our concerns as they take action of far-reaching consequence.
