Come join fellow UC researchers and students as we get ready for the Sacramento March for Science. On Thursday, April 20th at 4 pm we will be hosting a panel discussion between researchers, faculty and students to explore the issues that impact academic science and what we can do to defend and advance the cause of science and fact based policy. After the panel discussion we’ll be making signs to bring to the Sacramento March for Science on April 22nd. We’ll have food and plenty of sign making materials.

Hope to see you there! Please RSVP so we know how much food to order
