Science, scientists, and evidence-based policymaking are under attack. Budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets, and threats to dismantle government agencies harm us all, putting our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs at risk.
That’s why there is a national March for Science taking place on Earth Day, which this year falls on Saturday, April 22nd. One of the 514 satellite marches taking place that day is in Saint Paul beginning at 11:00 AM, with the starting point being at the Cathedral.
MCEA proud to be a partner organization of the March for Science-Minnesota, and we hope you come out that day to support the movement!
MCEA’s RegenerateMN Committee is also hosting a meetup prior to the march at Nina’s Coffee from 9:00-10:30 AM. Join us for coffee and camaraderie as we get amped up to march! A limited number of signs & posters will be available to those who gather with RegenerateMN.
Science is a critical tool that MCEA uses in order to defend Minnesota’s environment from poor regulation and the adverse effects of climate change. We are working everyday to advocate for Minnesota’s environment, its natural resources, and the health of its people. We have seen an unprecedented assault on science around the country, but also here in our own Minnesota legislature. We need you to join us in solidarity as we show our decision makers that science is critically important to build a better future!
