On April 14, 2018, in Trenton, the New Jersey Sierra Club will be co-hosting the second annual New Jersey March for Science. Along with other groups, elected official, and citizens from across the state, the Sierra Club will be speaking and marching in support of science. The march will begin at 10am on April 14 at the Trenton War Memorial at 1 Memorial Dr, Trenton, New Jersey.
“In the last year, since the March for Science, the Trump Administration has not only declared war on the environment but on science and public health. This Administration is reckless when it comes to protecting the public from toxic chemicals, climate change, and water and air pollution. Not only are they cutting programs from EPA and other agencies, they are gagging scientists as well. They are ignoring science by allowing dangerous pesticides and toxic chemicals to get out into the environment. Trump is rolling back and getting rid of programs to protect us from climate change and sea level rise including the Clean Power Plan. We’re here this year to say ENOUGH. We will fight to protect our air and water and fight climate change. We’re going to fight fake news and fake science!” said Jeff Tittel, Director of the New Jersey Sierra Club. “Science in Latin means knowledge and truth. We’re not going to let those liars in the Trump Administration destroy our environment and ruin our planet. We’re here to say Science YES, Trump NO.”
