Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations.

We speak up now because all of these values are currently at risk. When science is threatened, so is the society that scientists uphold and protect.

Core Principles include:

  • Science that serves the common good

  • Cutting-edge science education

  • Open and honest science communication and inclusive public outreach

  • Evidence-based policy and regulations in the public interest

  • Funding for scientific research and its applications

  • Access to science for underrepresented and underserved NC communities

Goals for the March:

  • Humanize science

  • Partner with the public

  • Advocate for open, inclusive, and accessible science

  • Support scientists

  • Affirm science as necessary to democracy
