Vote for Science

Vote for Science is part of the March for
Science movement.  The 2017 March for
Science may be over, but the hard work has just begun. We are using the
continued momentum of the March for Science to transform our communities and
our governments.

On this World Science Day, we are excited to
announce our Vote For Science campaign, a new MFS yearlong initiative
which aims to bridge the gap between science advocacy and civic engagement.

The clock is ticking to the midterm elections
in November 2018 and over the next year, we’re going to mobilize and engage
with our elected officials and communities, and give science a voice! But
voting for science doesn’t just mean showing up on election day. We have to:

·  Have conversations with our communities about
why science and science policy matter in our lives.

·  Keep in touch with our elected officials at
every level, holding them accountable and making sure they know we’re paying
attention when they make decisions that affect science, science policy, and our

·  Help register more voters, and remind our
friends, families, and fellow community members to go to the polls.

Join the March for Science as we take the next
step forward in science advocacy: Pledge to Vote for Science.
