The “Aspen Earth Day Climate & Science March” is one of five hundred marches happening across the world on Earth Day.Given recent science-related budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets, and threats to dismantle science-based government agencies -- our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs are at risk. Therefore, the goal of this Earth Day March is to take the first step in defending the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and government. Marchers are advocating for evidence-based policymaking, science education, research funding, and inclusive and accessible science.
Please join us for this important family-friendly community & worldwide Earth Day event -- and take a public stand for science!
