Dear Science Marchers,
Some political leaders have tried to ignore or dismiss these critical evidence-based reports. We're not fooled. We will not let deniers derail us. We will not be frozen by their inaction. As 15-year-old climate hero Greta Thunberg said at the UN climate conference: "Change is coming whether they like it or not. The people will rise to the challenge."
That's why the March for Science, as a non-partisan organization, supports the Green New Deal, a framework for creating science-based policies that will meaningfully address climate change, create jobs, and deliver justice for our communities.
This week, thousands of young people from around the country, organized by the Sunrise Movement and partners, have been visiting their members of Congress to advocate for a Green New Deal. As science advocates, we must stand with our youth leaders. Please call your representatives today to tell them that you support urgent and meaningful action on climate.
There’s no time to waste. We all need to work together to pressure our politicians to tackle climate change with the seriousness it requires.
The March for Science Team
