Why are Hawaii Alliance for Science members participating in the March for Science on Saturday, April 22nd? Here are a few of the reasons:
Why I'm participating? For so many reasons--advances in medicine that let me and my family enjoy good health, an abundant, varied and consistent array of fresh food, constant advances in technology that make life so much easier. There are so many reasons. At the heart of it all I March for Science for the love of my family.
I march because it is incredibly important that our children are given information that is based in sound, evidence driven fact, in order to better understand the world around them.
"As a livestock reproductive physiologist, I participate because knowing the newest science helps me help farmers and ranchers improve their reproductive efficiency and it makes me a better teacher of animal reproduction."
We need to support science so we can continue to understand, grow, and benefit from what we learn!
I am participating in the March for Science in the hope that our next generation will have even more opportunities for rewarding careers in Science.
I will be marching for science because as a farmer we rely on many years of replicated research by science that present peer reviewed facts for best management practices.
I march for science because I love bananas.
I'm participating because we must all take a stand against steadily worsening know-nothing pollution. Anti-science bias is moral smog.
I'm marching because I want future generations of farmers to have access to the tools they need to feed us.
I march for science in hopes of a better future for my children.
I March for Science because Science can help people live their life to the fullest!
I march for Science because I want my children, and grandchildren and great grandchildren to live long, healthy, happy lives on a rich and thriving Earth.
I march for future scientists.
I will march in order to support the preservation of our National Parks and public spaces.
As you can see, our members are participating in the global March for Science for a variety of reasons, but we all share a belief in the mission statement: "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 policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest."
The Cornell Alliance for Science will have members marching in Washington, D.C. and several satellite marches around the globe, including Bangladesh, Philippines, Uganda, Mexico, Nigeria, and right here in Hawai'i!
In Hawaii, there will be marches on Oahu, Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai. We hope you will participate in your local march, invite your friends, and share your experience with other members. Please visit our website and the island links above for more information on locations and times.
If you need a sign or other gear for the march, you can find Alliance for Science-branded items here.
