[Alliance Event] March for our lives, Boston

We are partnering with the Humanist Hub in Harvard Square to meet beforehand. That way we can go as a group–it’s hard to find everyone on the Common in the throng of people. Humanist Hub details: https://www.facebook.com/events/271574740046045/

Meet at the Hub at 11am if you want to come with us as a group.

Meet at the Crispus Attucks Memorial at 12pm if you’re coming directly.

As members of the skeptics community, we want to see legislation and public health decisions made using science-based methods and evidence. One area this hasn’t played out enough is with the causes of and solutions for gun violence. Due to the tragic mass shooting that happened in Parkland, Florida, this conversation has erupted into a national discussion. The survivors in Parkland have taken a stand to discuss this pressing problem and policy solutions for it, and this includes a March for Our Lives that they and other students across the country have established. With local allied groups, we will attend the upcoming March for Our Lives in Boston on March 24. We’re going to support calls for bolstering science-based research and policies for reducing gun violence that are based on the best evidence we can uncover, including, but not limited to, calling for the removal of restrictions on the CDC’s ability to do such research. Details to come, but please save the date if you’d like to march with us. We will meet beforehand to go over as a group, and potentially have a discussion afterwards. Start working on some sign ideas!

Save the date, full details to come.
Location: Boston Common eventually, we may meet earlier elsewhere to go over together.
Time: 11am–?
