People who value science have remained silent for far too long in the face of policies that ignore scientific evidence and endanger both human life and the future of our world. New policies threaten to further restrict scientists’ ability to research and communicate their findings. We face a possible future where people not only ignore scientific evidence, but seek to eliminate it entirely. Staying silent is a luxury that we can no longer afford. We must stand together and support science.
We will begin gathering at 2 pm at Long Beach Town Green on Jeff Davis Ave. Long Beach. We will march beginning at 3 pm to the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Auditorium where a closing ceremony will be held. The event is being sponsored by USM Eco Eagles, Citizens Climate Lobby, and Steps Coalition.
