Ask your institution to respond in the wake of Maria

Giovanna Guerrero-Medina's picture

Dear members of the CienciaPR community,

Many of you have reached out to learn how you can ask your institutions in the U.S. to support members of the university community who have been directly and indirectly affected by hurricane Maria, as well as relief efforts in the Caribbean. This has undoubtedly been a stressful week and for many of us, it’s been hard to focus on work, school or science.

The March was only the beginning

The March for Science Puerto Rico was a historic day. However, Earth Day 2017 was not the end, but the beginning of our work. We need your help to continue celebrating, advocating and defending science in Puerto Rico and around the world.

In the coming weeks we will be sharing actions that you can take to continue advancing the goals of the March for Science Puerto Rico.

Under the Caribbean sun and embraced a cool sea breeze, on April 22, 2017, over 600 scientists, students and citizens marched for science. It was a historic day for Puerto Rican science. Young and old flooded the streets of historic Old San Juan to celebrate #cienciaboricua, to demand policies based on evidence and informed by the local scientific community. We joined 600+ cities around the world to #MarchForScience.

Science will not thank you: volunteer anecdote

“Doing science” is to generate knowledge. The process of generating knowledge does not involve any feelings nor does it allow you to know if your findings have any value or not.

This is because science is a human and social process.  The people who give value to the new knowledge generated are the scientists themselves who are people just like you and me.

Help us support science, before and after the March
