We are a group of scientists and science supporters, organizing in defense of science. Our coalition has formed as a direct response to attacks on science in the current political climate.
Concerned Scientists @ IU is dedicated to strengthening the essential role of science and evidence-based decision making, at all levels: individual actions, community-based efforts; state and federal government; and international organizations.As a group, we aim to support science via four core aims:
1) Promote the accurate representation of science in the media, in education, and in the design of legislation;
2) Engage with the public to communicate science, especially as it relates to core issues influenced by public policy;
3) Promote the participation of scientists in policy-making processes; and
4) Support continued federal funding for independent scientific research and defending research from politically motivated attacks.
