Science Rising is a nationwide mobilization effort taking place throughout 2018 in the run-up to the midterm elections. It is not a one-day march—it is a series of local activities, events, and actions organized by many different groups.

Our shared goal is to ensure that science is front-and-center in the decision-making processes that affect us all—and to fight back against efforts that sideline science from its crucial role in our democracy.

#ScienceRising Twitter Chat: A Healthy Democracy Requires Honesty and Accountability

August 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Future of Research and Science Rising invite you to the fourth in a series of Twitter Chats on the principles of ScienceRising and the science advocacy movement.

Lying to the public for private or political gain is always wrong. We should all be able to know the facts, even when they are inconvenient—especially when they are inconvenient. Public officials and private interests should face consequences when they mislead the public.

Use the hashtag #ScienceRising and follow @FORsymp to join the conversation on Twitter.
