Fog Horn (A Call to Action)
Flotsam (what we’re obsessed with right now)
The March for Science has a diversity problem.
Ok, to be clear, the committee organizing the march is the one with the problem. As they’re about to find out, a movement like this will resist, among other things, the efforts of a few to take ownership over a much grander view of life. The Science March on Washington (and the marches in your home state) is bigger than one organization.
Five months ago, we issued a mandate for Southern Fried Science, that we would strive to tear down barriers, to breach the dam, because Diversity is Resilience. Seeing the March for Science struggle and seemingly succumb to the same weathered barricades reinforced, for me, exactly why we need that mandate.
“Science isn’t political” is a lovely Platonic platitude that we whisper reassuringly into comfortable ears.
It is not so.
