Morris Area Rally for Science
April 14, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree

9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Rural Minnesota is being threatened by the President’s budget; the North Central Soil Conservation Research Laboratory is slated for closure. The Morris Area Rally for Science demonstrates rural people’s passion for science and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue gives policymakers permission to reject the overwhelming evidence. This is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
The relationship between science and democracy must not continue to erode. The application of science to society is not divorced from politics. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start here, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels—from local schools to federal agencies–throughout the world.
