Colorado Scientific Society at the Denver March for Science
On Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2017,
based in Civic Center Park, from before 10 am to 3:00 pm
“The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.” (from the March for Science Facebook page) For more info see:
The Colorado Scientific Society (among many other science organizations) will have a booth at the “teach-in” area in Civic Center Park. If you are at the March, please stop by and join us to represent CSS!
The CSS Council approved a statement endorsing the March for Science and its goals:
“The Colorado Scientific Society endorses the March for Science on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, 2017. For 135 years our Society has promoted the understanding of science and its application to public needs. We believe our civilization is made better by scientific research and discovery. We support research across all disciplines. Earth Day brings a focus on earth sciences, an arena of scientific endeavor that enhances our ability to benefit from and wisely use Earth’s resources and helps us better understand the context of our place on Earth. Through this endorsement, we encourage our members and our colleagues to redouble their efforts to share their scientific perspectives with their friends and their communities.”
Join the Colorado Scientific Society at the March for Science in Denver. The March will start and end in Civic Center Park, between Broadway (State Capitol side) and Bannock St. (Denver City & County Building side). Events (speeches, musical groups) will be taking place between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The March itself will begin at 10:00 (get there early!). Before or after the March, visit the Colorado Scientific Society table in the area for “Earth, Rivers, and Oceans” in Civic Center Park. The area with our booth will be in the central/northeast part of the park, closest to Colfax Ave.
We have ordered a batch of CSS/March for Science T-SHIRTS that will be available in time for the March! You can pick one up at our April 20 meeting, or, at our booth on the day of the March. I believe the cost will be $20. If you want to reserve one, please write or call Marith Reheis to do so (303-277-1843, email@example.com). Otherwise, first come, first served (but we’ve ordered about 40 of them), you may get them at our April meeting or at the March.
