Friday Action Item: Two weeks until we #MarchForScience

On Fridays while the current administration is in office we’re posting small, concrete things you can do to help make things better. Got a suggestion for an Action Item? E-mail us!
In just over three weeks, we’ll march for science. Whether you’ll be in Washington DC on Earth Day, or joining one of the hundreds of local events around the world, April 22 is our date to gather, in public, in support of science and its role in a free and healthy society.
We’ll have more detail about where TME contributors will be marching, but if you’re a molecular ecologist, there’s plenty of opportunity to highlight your expertise and find folks with similar interests. The Genetics Society of America is offering T-shirts just for the March, including one with a nice evolution-y slogan, and you have two days left to order for delivery by the 22nd. (Or consider repping TME?) Members of the American Society of Naturalists, the Society for Systematic Biology, and the Society for the Study of Evolution are also invited to take this survey to help meet up at individual marches, and to volunteer to organize activities around them.
We’ll see you in a fortnight — in Washington and worldwide.
