Washington Post: Why People are Marching for Science: ‘There is no Planet B’
“We need increased funding, not budget cuts, and we need an equal opportunity to be funded,” Dr. Craig Fryer said in a Washington Post article about the March for Science in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, April 22. Dr. Fryer "marched down Constitution Avenue alongside several of his colleagues from the University of Maryland School of Public Health, all wearing T-shirts that read 'Black Scientists Matter'," the Post article reads. "Fryer, a behavioral scientist who studies substance abuse, carried a sign that proclaimed 'Black Scientists Speaking Truth to Power.' He said he and his colleagues are concerned about racial disparities in funding for research."
