March for Science Follow-up:   Six Weeks, Six Actions

Scientists and supporters showed support for science at sites around the world on Saturday, April 22.  Now what?  BPS encourages you to stay involved and active.  The Society is launching six weeks of action to make it easy for you to be engaged.  For week one, we ask that you contact your Congressmen and ask them to pass a FY 2017 budget that funds science.  This is a critical message at this time since Congress must take action this week to avoid a government shutdown.  

You can send an email, a Tweet, or post a Facebook message.  Take action today!


Marches Around the World

There were over 525 satellite marches on April 22.
