Join AASF at the March for Science in SF
On Saturday, April 22, Earth Day, AASF will join East Bay Atheists and other secular groups at the March for Science in San Francisco. The event is expected to draw thousands of participants. Last month at East Bay Atheists we talked about how to counter the current attack on secular values, and this event is a superb example of what can be done.
American Atheists joins other secular groups in sponsoring this event around the country, with the primary site in Washington, DC. Here is the official description for the event: "The March for Science - San Francisco celebrates public discovery, understanding, and distribution of scientific knowledge as crucial to the freedom, success, health, and safety of life on this planet. We are a nonpartisan group, marching in support of the following goals: Communication, Funding, Policy, Literacy, and Diversity." https://marchforsciencesf.com/

We will provide some signs. Feel free to bring your own, but please make them on topic.
