Mission Statement

SDA’s mission is to guide communities in using science for social good.

Description

SDA is a newly incorporated volunteer run non-profit created by the planning committees of the first annual Buffalo March for Science that took place on April 22 nd, 2017 in Delaware Park.

Core Values:

Scientific Literacy: We know that a practical knowledge of the scientific process helps communities make better personal and political choices.

Evidence-Based Policy: We know that the best policies are not created by political ideologies or media talking points. We advocate for legislation that successfully utilizes relevant information across fields.

Diversity: We know that diverse voices working together create better strategies, policies, and action. Inclusion makes us all stronger.

Grassroots Community Organizing: We know that amplifying community voices encourages participation in all levels of government.

Integrated Disciplines: We know that collaboration over competition allows us to learn from one another and devise creative solutions.

True Dialogue: We know that the practice of science should be accessible, transparent, and accountable to communities. This means active listening, accurate reporting, and responsive research.

Nonpartisanship: We know that strong policy decisions transcend political parties. We seek to speak meaningfully to influence policy, rather than politics.
