We are marching for many reasons on Saturday. Seattle pod member, Judy Twedt, wrote a fantastic medium post titled, "When I March for Science, I March for Workers." This piece describes her work with labor unions and emphasizes the importance of making science accessible to everyone.
As Judy states,
"When I march for science, I march for a vision of society that embraces our hard-earned knowledge about the physical world, that promotes a diverse body of scientists, science educators, and science communicators, and that demands that our lawmakers put evidence above ego when making decisions that affect ordinary Americans."
Thank you, Judy, for writing this statement and we look forward to marching with you on Saturday!
