Research!America has a great page where you can email your representatives and tell them we NEED CURES, NOT CUTs! Support medical research and advocate science by contacting your members of congress to fight cuts to science.
Medical Research Saves Lives, Provides Hope and Fuels our Economy.
We NEED CURES, NOT CUTS.
Sequestration arbitrarily stifles federal investment in national priorities like medical research and innovation, at the expense of America and Americans.
Deficit reduction is important, but there are ways to achieve it that do not set out nation back, threatening our global leadership and shortchanging the health and safety of the American people.
Tell Congress: WE NEED CURES, NOT CUTS!
This Sunday is the People’s Climate March in NYC, which leads into the United Nations Climate Summit and the sixth annual Climate Week NYC, September 22-28! See the previous post from CauseScience. The March begins at 11:30 am, starting north of Columbus Circle, then looping through midtown (map of march route below).
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.
With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.
To change everything, we need everyone on board. Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.
The March is organized according to the lineup theme:
The Lineup – Telling the Story of Today’s Climate Movement
Today’s climate movement is different from the one of decades past, and we want to make sure the People’s Climate March tells the story of today’s climate movement. To make that happen, we’re trying something new and arranging the contingents of the march in a way that helps us thread our many messages together.
CauseScience and some friends will be marching in the lineup, grouping with other scientists under the theme ‘The Debate Is Over!’ This group will congregate between 81st and 82nd St. Hope to see you there! Join the Largest Climate March in History!
