*Goals for the March for Science - San Francisco event:*

·Communication: Publicly-funded scientists must be free to communicate 
openly their research, data sets, and interpretations of their work. 
Public outreach, education, and accessibility of scientific knowledge 
should be encouraged.

·Funding: Investment in science and research is essential to drive 
innovation and deliver solutions to the complex challenges society 
faces. A long term strategic approach to funding science is needed, with 
policy stability and a commitment to increased investment that will 
ensure future growth and prosperity.

·Policy: Public policy should be guided by evidence-based scientific 
research, local scientific knowledge, and mainstream scientific consensus.

·Literacy: A well-informed citizenry is essential to a free and 
successful society. We support initiatives to promote broad public 
knowledge and discussion of scientific work.

·Diversity: We consider all human beings equal. This should be reflected 
by diversity in scientific opportunities and leadership, open access to 
scientific results, and fair distribution of the benefits of scientific 
discoveries. We oppose the manipulation of science to marginalize groups 
of people, and instead support the right to pursue and enjoy the fruits 
of science regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual 
orientation, religion or lack thereof, political affiliation, or 
socioeconomic status.
