"At the 600-plus Marches for Science around the world this Earth Day, we reminded everyone, our lawmakers especially, that science serves our society, and science must shape our public policies. The science marches can prove effective by prompting action. May the facts be with us."

The US has long respected and promoted science, but science is being undermined by ideological forces motivated to maintain the status quo, says Bill Nye.

CALL TO ACTION - Tuesday April 25, 2017:

WHO TO CALL: Rep Brooks, Sen Shelby, Sen Strange

WHAT TO SAY:

Hello, my name is [NAME] and I live in [CITY], [ZIP]. I wanted to let Mr. [Brooks/Shelby/Strange] know that I was one of the thousands of Alabamians, including 1,150 in District 5, who gathered together on Saturday peacefully in a non-partisan March for Science. The march was in support of public funding for science and for encouraging evidence-based policy, both of which I believe are critical to our success as a community. Thank you for taking my call.
