In conjunction with a national demonstration on the Washington DC Mall there will be a gathering to March for Science in Seattle on April 22nd. You are invited to join Dave and Elaine Kearney to go together to this important event. Science, scientists, and evidence-based policy making are under attack. Budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing data-sets, and threats to dismantle government agencies harm us all, putting our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs at risk. It is time for people who support science to take a public stand and be counted. 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. The Seattle March starts at Cal Anderson Park on Capital Hill at 11th Ave and Pine, from 10am to 1pm. To avoid traffic and parking issues, we will use public transportation to get to the March. The plan is to walk-on the 8:35am ferry to Seattle, take Rapid Bus C from the Fauntleroy dock to 3rd and Pike, and walk 8 blocks east to the Park. Please email Dave if you wish to travel together by first meeting on the ferry.
