BENEFITING: Advocates For Responsible Care Inc
EVENT: The March For Science
EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2017
On April 22 - Earth Day - March for Science.
Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy, and the future we hope to experience and preserve for coming generations.
We march because these values are currently at risk. When science is threatened or ignored, society bears the effects. The non-partisan March for Science advocates for evidence-based public policy decision-making and for science generally.
Marching comes with costs, of which is liability insurance alone is $0.50 for every marcher in attendance. Thus, larger voices equate to larger costs. However, we find it encumbent on us to speak loudly and clearly: please formulate policies based on, rather than in ignorance of, scientific evidence and facts. Please consider donating to this campaign, that we might preserve the sanctity of science, protect our childrens' future, and move forward with sound, data-driven decisions rather than political bias.

- Liability insurance for 20K marchers $ 10,000
