Now more than ever, governmental support for scientific research is under threat. Thankfully, the Darwin Day resolutions, H. Res. 123 and S. Res. 63, have been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate for the seventh time since 2011 due to the hard work of the AHA’s lobbying team. We are proud to work again with Representative Jim Himes (D-CT) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) to introduce the resolutions, which:
- State that evolution “provides humanity with a logical and intellectually compelling explanation for the diversity of life on Earth”
- Demand that the “advancement of science be protected from those unconcerned with the adverse impacts of global warming and climate change”
- Confirm that the “teaching of creationism in some public schools compromises the scientific and academic integrity of the United States’ education systems”
These resolutions will only pass Congress if we have your help. Can you take a moment right now to ask your Representative and Senators to co-sponsor these important resolutions?
Congress has an opportunity to stand up for science and scientific research, but without your voice they could miss their chance. Take a moment right now to ask that Congress pass the Darwin Day resolutions.
Thank you for standing up for science.
