Citizens of New Hampshire will stand up for science and evidence-based policies with a march and rally at the NH State House in Concord NH on Earth Day, April 22, 2017. The event is being organized due to concerns that scientific evidence is being rejected or ignored by political leaders in our state and federal governments when developing policies that impact critical issues, like climate change.
The March for Science – Concord, NH is an official satellite of the Washington DC March for Science and is coordinating with the national leadership team as well as over 360 satellite locations worldwide. NH organizers are hopeful that several thousand people will march in Concord in support of evidence-based policies, uncensored communication of scientific data, and legislation which protects society and improves public health.
NH Organizer, Josh Carlson said that “this event is not just about scientists or politicians; it’s about the role that science plays in our lives and the need to encourage and support evidence-based practices and policies to improve our lives and our world.”
Several NH-based and national non-profit organizations have partnered to organize the March. Partners include the Union of Concerned Scientists, League of Conservation Voters, 350NH.org, Citizen’s Climate Lobby, Moms Clean Air Force, Acadia Center, Toxics Action Center, Kearsarge Changing Climate Change, NH Unites for Humanity, and Echo Action.
As an official satellite for the March for Science, this event is endorsed by over 20 partners of the national march https://www.marchforscience.
