March for Science
ABCT has many members participating in the National March for Science on Saturday, April 22, 2017. As mental health professionals, we know the importance of scientific research.
Our members will march in solidarity with scientists and science-supporters from around the globe. The March for Science's mission is as follows:
"The March for Science Champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest."
If you do plan to participate, ABCT reminds you that this event is not a protest or a demonstration against any political party. The event is a peaceful celebration of science.
ABCT has created signs showing that we think CBT is a particularly important science. Choose one from the four below, or make your own. You and your fellow science-supporters are welcome to use them.
Please be aware that you may not be permitted to mount signs on wooden sticks (be sure to double-check the rules and regulations for the Science March you plan to attend).
We suggest printing signs on heavy
cardboard or backing them with cardboard. There are
also some creative solutions -- we've heard tell of people mounting signs on baguettes, for example.
Be scientific and be safe, ABCT. We're so proud of you all.
