Make the Science March Count — Call your Members of Congress!
Tomorrow, people all over the world will participate in the March for Science. Whether you are able to march tomorrow or not, make the March count by calling your 3 members of Congress.
- Tell them you support the goals of the March for Science and its demand for scientifically-informed, evidence-based government programs and policy.
- Tell your House Representative (especially if they are Republican!) that you oppose any cuts to scientific, evidence-based programs in the president’s proposed budget. Cuts are proposed for the following programs: The Global Climate Change Initiative, the Green Climate Fund, the Strategic Climate Fund, the Clean Technology Fund, NASA’s Office of Education, the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, and 50 other EPA programs including the Energy Star program and the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program.
- Tell Senator Booker and Senator Menendez to vote NO on HR 1430 and HR 1431, two bills that have passed in the House and are now waiting to be voted on in the Senate. These two bills will make it harder for evidence-based research and scientists to guide policy at the EPA.
