-To show support for the scientific community.
-To safeguard the scientific process, and research funding, when seeking answers to the things that matter.
-To publicly celebrate science, which helps us make sense of ourselves and our world.
-To encourage curiosity and exploration, the heart of the scientific approach.
A recent focus on science and how scientific findings impact public policy has put a spotlight on the scientific community and their research. We accept that science, as a field of knowledge and way of thinking, is not swayed by politics or opinions; it is nonpartisan and all-inclusive. This is the time for us to come together as one community, take a stand, and lead a new conversation.
