No. When politicians of any affiliation skew, ignore, or interfere with science, that’s a problem. Science has long been an established, reliable tool for reducing human bias in decision-making. So while science can’t tell us what to do, it should absolutely inform the choices we make. As scientists, it’s our job to speak the truth, to be transparent and to work with integrity no matter what — and that includes the political environment in which we work. We owe it to our profession and our communities to do more to make science work for everyone. In doing so, we hope we can improve how politicians view science, too.
We take strong stands on policy issues based on the best available scientific evidence, but we will not let our movement be defined by any one politician or party nor do we try to advance the prospects of any party or individual. Science affects people everywhere, and we want to build a movement that can advance science’s ability to serve communities for a very long time, long after today’s politicians have left office and however political parties evolve.
The march is explicitly a political movement, aimed at holding leaders in politics and science accountable. When institutions of any affiliation skew, ignore, misuse or interfere with science, we have to speak out. Science should inform political decision making. At the same time, political decisions deeply influence the type of science we are able to do and the type of people who are allowed to conduct science and benefit from scientific advancements.
The goal of the march itself is to highlight the valuable public service role science plays in society and policy and demonstrate the deep public support for science. The March for Science movement has goals that extend long past gathering a crowd on April 22. As a lasting national organization, we will encourage marchers to uphold our shared values and take specific actions, including strengthening the bonds between scientists and the public, engaging in ongoing science education, fighting discrimination in our own institutions and our communities, and insisting their legislators propose and enact evidence based policies.
