SCIENCE MARCHES ON
In 2017, more than one million people around the world gathered together in the largest event for science advocacy in history. In 2018, we unite again to hold our elected officials responsible for enacting science-based policies that serve all communities for the common good.
On April 21 (the day before official Earth Day) Wyoming Rising–Northwest will host a March For Science. We will meet at the Buffalo Bill statue on the corner of Cody City Park at 11:00 a.m. We should be done around 12:30.
Bring signs and slogans! We have a stellar group of speakers to help us get fired up for the environment, including
- Jenny Desaro with the GYC
- Geoff Baumann and Dan White, science teachers
- Larry Todd, anthropologist
- Lucille Sax, high school student activist
After the March, stroll over to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West to enjoy their free Earth Day Celebration from noon to 4 p.m. Wyoming Rising–Northwest members believe we have a responsibility to tell our leaders just how critical science is at this make-or-break moment for our Earth. You know that we have a shrinking window of time left to put our planet on the path to a more hopeful future.
That’s why I’m marching. And it’s why I hope you’ll be with us in spirit—even if you can’t be there in person. If you aren’t in Cody that day, or if you want to participate in an official March For Science rally on April 14, check the Action Network’s map of Marches For Science: 2018
Show your conviction that science has the power to change our world for the better.
Show that you’ll step up and be counted in support of the science we need to take on our biggest environmental challenges.
Join Wyoming Rising—and stand with us at this important event.
Thanks in advance
