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: We All Suffer When Science Becomes Partisan
July 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We all suffer when science becomes partisan. Science is non-partisan and should inform decision making no matter which party is in power. All government officials should be expected to resist the temptation to politicize science or muzzle scientific experts. We must be vigilant to ensure that publicly funded and independent science is never suppressed, censored, or manipulated.
