We accept the following as provisionally true:

  • The Earth is becoming warmer due to human action.
  • The diversity of life arose by evolution.
  • An American government that ignores science to pursue ideological agendas threatens not only the environment of which humans are a part, but America itself.
  • Scientific research in the United States is underfunded.
  • Politicians who devalue expertise risk making decisions that do not reflect reality.

Who can participate:

Science is a methodology and a way of thinking. Anyone who uses and values these tools for understanding the world, not just professional scientists, may participate.

How can I help?  

We are still in the very early stages of organizing this event. We need all the help we can get, especially from people with expertise in the following areas:

  • Web Design
  • Logo/Graphic design
  • Law, incorporation of a not-for-profit
  • Fundraising
  • Public relations and media relations
  • Social media management
  • Organizing large events
  • Acquiring permits in DC
  • Contacts with possible speakers

You don’t need to be a professional scientist to participate!
