Why he marches
I strongly support this movement. I am a physical chemist, and life-long learner who believes that access to equitable high quality education leads to a diverse community. It leads to a community that is empowered to participate in solving the problems that will define our future. As someone who is entrusted with educating minds, I recognize that I play a critical role in the development of a scientific literate community; a community with the power to affect policy that is driven by scientifically sound research.
