March for Science is an effort comprised of dozens of independent, nonpartisan coordinators. Recent rhetoric has inspired them organize marches on Washington D.C. and in Satellite Marches across the country. It's mission statement is as follows:
The March For Science champions public funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, non-partisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.
The Mormon Transhumanist Affirmation states the following:
We believe that scientific knowledge and technological power are among the means ordained of God to enable such exaltation, including realization of diverse prophetic visions of transfiguration, immortality, resurrection, renewal of this world, and the discovery and creation of worlds without end. We feel a duty to use science and technology according to wisdom and inspiration, to identify and prepare for risks and responsibilities associated with future advances, and to persuade others to do likewise.
Much of the stated goals of March for Science and the Mormon Transhumanist Association are in harmony. Whatever one's political persuasion, we hope that you may find ways to support science and its role in society both secular and religious.
