Tomorrow is Earth Day!

With a beautiful, lush planet we have much to celebrate.

At the same time, we have much to protect.

Climate disruption is real and we must act now to prevent the worst scenarios. While our current administration considers abandoning the Paris agreement after already rolling back regulations and funding for environmental health and scientific programs, our leading scientists are fighting back with March for Science!

In the nation’s capital and in satellite marches across the country, you will see scientists take to the streets, conduct teach-ins, and post informative videos to remind our policy makers and their constituents of the value of their work in our daily lives.

We also look forward to the People's Climate Movement March in Washington D.C. on Saturday, April 29th but for now, we hope you will join us at 10 a.m. at City Hall in Philadelphia to march down Market Street to Penn’s Landing for the March for Science Philadelphia.

In between the March for Science and the People's Climate Movement March in DC, we encourage you to join the Academic Symposium on the Health Impacts of the Fracking Industry at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania by the he Student Physicians for Social Responsibility-Penn State Hershey Chapter.

 This symposium features the research of Yale's Dr. Nicole Deziel on the carcinogenic nature of the chemicals used in the fracking industry, Johns Hopkins' Dr. Brian Schwartz on the epidemiological data on asthma and fracking drill sites and PSR's own, Dr. Pouné Saberi's research on methane gas from the fracking industry and its impact on human health, especially as it relates to global climate disruption.

 Thank you always for all of your support!
