On April 22, 2017, we made our voices heard. Science is a way of thinking that is open to all. It is the systematic study of our world using evidence. Peer reviewed research should not be labeled as "opinion" nor should scientific truths be discredited without evidence.
The mis-characterization of science is an issue facing the world. We seek to promote science literacy, foster relationships between scientists and the public, and bring voice to issues facing the scientific community.
"The Important thing is not to stop questioning" -Albert Einstein
