The June 28 shooting at the Capital Gazette reminds us that the epidemic of gun violence that claims more than thirty thousand lives a year continues unabated. The Dickey Amendment, which prevents research into gun violence, is still on the books, despite meaningless “clarifying" language from Congress that came with no funding. The result: we know shockingly little about the sort of policies that could make a real difference.
Join us at Pizza Luce in Richfield at 6pm on July 12 to write Congress and demand a full repeal of the Dickey Amendment along with dedicated funding into gun safety research!
The day is almost here! Tomorrow, May 19, join us at noon in Mears Park to Rally for Science! It's never been more important to advocate for science and evidence-based policy. We have an exciting program lined up. At noon, enjoy family friendly activities, and take the opportunity to meet with science and advocacy organizations! At 1pm, hear our amazing speakers talk about the importance of science in education, the environment, public health and more! Afterwards, join your organizers for a pint at Tin Whisker's Brewing to help raise money for our work.

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Eric Dayton and his brother co-founded Askov Finlayson in 2011, an outdoor clothing company inspired by year-round exploration with the mission to Keep the North Cold. The company measures its own carbon footprint and then gives away 110% of that amount annually to support leading-edge climate change solutions. Askov Finlayson has committed $1 million over the next five years to fund some of the world’s most innovative climate action organizations.
Just Two Weeks To the Rally for Science
We hope you're as excited as we are to Rally for Science on May 19 in Mears Park Noon: Visit with science and advocacy organizations and enjoy family activities. 1:00 pm: Speakers begin. Afterwards, join your organizers for a pint at Tin Whiskers Brewery!
Good news! Lead safety Activist and 2018 Rally for Science speaker Ticiea Fletcher tells us the House has passed the Dustin Luke Shields Lead Poisoning Prevention Act. Next up, the Senate!
As this Saturday's forecast gets worse and worse, your friendly neighborhood organizers have been working hard to put together a new plan for this year's Rally for Science! We are pleased to announce a new date and location: Enjoy family activities and meet organizations dedicated to science at noon. Rally begins at 1:00 pm. We hope to see you there!
Has this never-ending winter got you down? It's got your organizers down too! Because of the forecast cold winds and snow, we have decided to postpone the Rally for Science.
We want to have a fun, family-friendly event where we can all talk about the importance of science and its impacts, but this year's weather will likely make it less fun. We want to thank everyone who has supported us so far and would likely be willing to Rally out into the snow.
We will let you all know when we get a new date for our amazing speakers and friends. Please stay tuned, and sorry for any inconvenience due to planning.
