APS Endorses March for Science

After a thoughtful, deliberative process involving an examination of the alignment of the values of the American Physical Society (APS) with the goals of the March for Science on April 22 in Washington, D.C., the APS Council Steering Committee, on behalf of the Council of Representatives, unanimously voted to endorse the march.

According to its mission statement, "The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.” APS member participation in the march will exemplify the enthusiasm for science that APS has always encouraged.

The American Physical Society, while steadfastly nonpartisan, is dedicated to the advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics, to upholding scientific integrity, and to supporting a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive scientific community. APS will work with march organizers and other scientific societies to further these positive principles.
