March for Science/Earth Day Cleanup

  • At Lehigh Valley Humanists, we are proud to be a part of March for Science Lehigh Valley by participating in an environment-focused rally in Bethlehem on Earth Day. We will be making pro-science signs at an event to be announced, participating in the rally, and doing an Earth Day cleanup in the immediate area afterward. Humanism goes hand-in-hand with science and reality based knowledge, so please help us fight for rational public policy.

    Among March for Science vital messages :

    - The relationship between science and democracy is under threat.

    - Too many politicians see science as a threat to their agenda instead of a useful tool for making policy.

    - New policies threaten to hurt scientists’ ability to do research and communicate their findings to the public that supports that research in the first place. We simply
    can’t let science be censored.

    - What we’re seeing now is worse than politicians simply ignoring scientific evidence; they are trying to undermine our ability to do and share vitally important science.

    - We need real facts - not alternative ones - to make effective decisions. And we need scientific theories - not conspiracy theories - to make sense of our world.

    - We have to do more in the scientific community and in the communities in which we work to fight discrimination and inequity. Everyone deserves the opportunity to
    do science and everyone deserves access to the benefits scientific research produces.
