Rep. Jime Himes introduces Darwin Day Resolution in the House.
Now more than ever, governmental support for scientific research is under threat. Thankfully, due to the hard work of the AHA’s lobbying team, H. Res. 44, the Darwin Day Resolution, has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives for the sixth time since 2011. We are proud to work with Representative Jim Himes (D-CT) again to introduce the resolution, which:
- States that evolution “provides humanity with a logical and intellectually compelling explanation for the diversity of life on Earth”
- Demands that the “advancement of science be protected from those unconcerned with the adverse impacts of global warming and climate change”
- Confirms that the “teaching of creationism in some public schools compromises the scientific and academic integrity of the United States’ education systems”
This resolution will only pass Congress if we have your help. Can you take a moment right now to ask your Representative to co-sponsor this important resolution?
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 resolution.
Thank you for standing up for science.
