Remember this happening every month and more over the interstates in SEVERAL states, disrupting rush hour traffic?

Tell me ONE MORE TIME to just accept this presidency because no one ever acted like this with Obama...

Btw, I do accept that Trump is president. I am even happy about at least one of his executive orders.

But MANY others are going to hurt MANY people including the ones telling me to just get over it.

I don't raise these flags for me. I'm not affected in the way many of you are (Medicare/Medicaid, social security, veteran resources and aid, vote suppression, racism-based suppression of rights, poisoned water, planned parenthood resources that help low-income women get aid to have HEALTHY babies, not just abortions, and so much more).

I raise these flags because I care about ALL of the people in this country, even if they voted for... more »

Who are you?

Everyone who is organizing this event is a volunteer. They have donated their time and talents. We are incredibly grateful to have an amazing community in Kansas City from moderators of our social media pages to local business owners who provided us with resources and venues!

The group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/412735065725833/

See bios of the KC March for Science Admins below.

What do you stand for?

We want the KC March to be an educational, enjoyable and peaceful gathering of science-loving minds.
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.

Why aren’t we marching?

We are unable to purchase the permits to be a parade which is the only legal way to walk in the streets, so we decided to focus less on the marching and more on the science itself. We will have teach-ins, educational booths, voter registration booths and interactive activities for children. But if you happen to organize as groups and march in as your signs, there’s nothing we can do to stop you.

Who will be speaking?

We have blocked out 4 hours for speeches. In-between our invited guest speakers, we will invite members of the audience to join us on the stage and share their Why I March story.

Current confirmed speakers (subject to change).

Roy Jansen, PhD - Director, University of Kansas Cancer Center
Sci Babe - Yvette d’Entremont, http://scibabe.com
Kenneth Peterson, PhD - Director, Center for Epigenetics and Stem Cell Biology

Where can I donate?

You can donate money to the KC March for Science Chapter at https://www.gofundme.com/sciencemarchKC.

Or buy a shirt here:
https://www.bonfire.com/march-for-science-kansas-city/ (Locally-made shirts to come.)

Why do you need donations?
With support from the National D.C. March for Science organizers and other various Kansas City local organizations (Indivisible, Women’s March) and have assessed the following necessary purchases in order to put on a family friendly, safe and enjoyable event.

We need money to purchase the necessary health and safety equipment (port-o-potties, EMTs, police), city permits, etc.
What will you do with money left over after the organization of the March is done?

All of the leftover donations will go directly back into Kansas City! We intend to divide the remaining funds and donate to local science supporting organizations (TBD).

Can I bring my child?
Of course! This will be a safe environment for children, and we hope they learn something too! Children’s activities are planned.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, you may bring your furry science supporters but they are required to be on leash and you must clean up after any messes your pet makes.

Why I March:

Make a sign with the words Why I March and tell us why you’re going to be marching for science! It can be a picture, video, or poem, basically anything you can think of and tweet it at @marchforscienceKC or email it to kcsciencemarch@gmail.com. We will choose the 25 submissions and invite you onto the stage on April 22 and ask you to share your opinion/story. This march is about making our voices heard and we mean to do so!

Administrators:

Jessie Blakeborough works as a virtual college adviser for low-income, underrepresented students across America. In addition to personalized counseling, she also conducts college access-based experiments to analyze successful outreach practices and student behaviors. She has spent several years as a Freelance Journalist in the Kansas City area after graduating with a BSc in Journalism and International Studies from the University of Kansas in 2013. An explorer at heart, Jessie has also lived in Scotland, England, Japan, and South Korea. She currently resides in the KC area with her adorable ginger pup Dobby.

Kenny Lee, PhD, still needs to tell you all about himself. But Jen worked with Kenny at the Stowers Institute and Kenny is now working toward being a high school teacher.

Jennifer Pace has 12 years of research experience in developmental biology. She has worked at the Stowers Institute in Kansas City and the IGBMC in Strasbourg, France, and is currently employed as a Research Associate at KU Med. Her passions are food, wine, animals, and travel, and she currently resides in midtown KC with her two crazy pups, Darwin and Barley.

Why I March: I march to reverse the culture of anti-intellectualism, fear of fact, and censorship of the scientific community.

Ian Shea-Cahir runs social media recruiting and employment experience and YRC Freight outside Kansas City. He spent 13 years as a newspaper journalist and editor, then spent a decade in social media and communications for major universities including UC Davis, the University of Kansas and Princeton University. He is married to an engineer with four children. He loves, soccer, Star Wars and early 1990s Britpop.

Why I march:
My wife is an engineer, as are 6 other members of my family. We live in a world where science is what brings us everything that we value in this world of convenience. As a father with two sons and two daughters, I can only hope that they have the tools and the skills to be able to take the world even farther. Ignoring the value and need for science is contrary to the idea that parents want a better world for their kids. We can't let that happen.___

[Admin] From DC:

"Good morning! A bit of Merch for Science news:

A Facebook page posing as the Women's March is selling March for Science shirts on teechip (and using promoted ads for them on facebook), claiming to donate all funds to the March for Science. They are not associated with us and have, at this point, probably raised more than $15,000 for their own use. Our official store is at http://store.marchforscience.com/ -- the shirt we sell is identical. We have tried multiple times to have this taken down, but teechip has been unresponsive.

If you were misled to purchase from them thinking that you were supporting the March for Science, we encourage you to reach out to https://teechip.com/contact and ask for a full refund.

KC NOTE: They haven't put up individual city shirts yet - locally, we will only profit from our own city shirt.___

1. We have added a group of moderators to the group. They will be there to help guide conversation, post interesting articles that are germane to the conversation, and keep out any trolls. They will post with [Mod] in the content.

2. We have discussed march routes and reached out to the city and other necessary agencies. We expect some details to be firmed up within the next week to 10 days.

3. We are committed to this being an educational as well as a political (not partisan) event. We are looking at how we can do booths, teach-ins and the like. We will ask your help on this front in the coming days.

4. We are in the process of merging our Twitter account with the other one that was created. We will keep both alive for the short term. Follow and tweet @ScienceMarchKC or @ScienceforKC. We also are on Instagram as @ScienceMarchKC. We will be adding Mods for those platforms next week.

5. A REQUEST: Please send us your story. One of the things we want to see on this page is WHY you're marching for science. Post your story with a photo or video! Or send it to us at kcsciencemarch@gmail.com

6. FUNDING UPDATE: We have raised more than $1,250. This is excellent. This will cover the permits we need. However, we are still asking that you donate because we need items such as bathrooms, police presence, stage setups, etc. We have no desire to ask for money, but it's part of the process. Please share the URL: http://www.gofundme.com/sciencemarchKC

7. FINALLY: We have the public page for the event itself. Please share it with all, and invite everyone you know! Our goal is to have at least 2,500 people out there marching. We know we can do it!

We have been overwhelmed by the participation and support. The folks who started this page are just regular people like you. Scientists and people who love science (I horned in later). Show your support, keep the momentum going, and let's show this country what science means to us here in the Heartland.___

[Admin] Happy Monday everyone!

Updates: We still haven't received a date for the march but are hoping to get more information with regards to that today.

Shout-outs to all who went in support of the protest yesterday at the airport! No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here!

As for everyone else, if you haven't already and are interested in jumping into action please fill out the survey we have as the top pinned post on this group. It helps us know who you are and what skills and passions you bring to the table!

In the meantime I hope you're as inspired by David Slack's post as I am. We are the difference and the fight. We are the resistance.

Given recent news, this is a point that's worth making again. It's great to do what you can, as I think everyone should -- especially now -- but pushing yourself past what you're capable of does nothing good.

I cannot even begin to explain how terrifying this is starting to become. What's on the outside is just a piece of the overall picture. And worse, many Americans (myself included through much of this), have no idea what the actual endgame could become. And even worse, some don't care to find out. It's not just about taking care of our own right now, because our own lives and humanity could soon be challenged.

The news continues to develop almost faster than I can type analyses. But I've tried to round up the most critical updates from the past few hours, together with a discussion of what they mean.

The short version is this: we're seeing the formation of an "inner circle" of government, including Trump, Bannon, Miller, Kushner, Priebus, and possibly Flynn and Conway, who have been taking deliberate steps to hobble the ability of all other parts of government – the rest of the Executive branch, Congress, and most especially the courts – from controlling them. Somewhat unexpectedly, they went straight for an attempt to grab extraordinary physical powers over people (yesterday's Muslim ban), rather than trying to boil the frog slowly; in the context of other moves taken over the past week, this starts to look like a coherent strategy.

Power, including the power to execute every one of the things that Trump promised to do during the campaign, is the primary goal; money, in large, untraceable quantities, appears to be the secondary.___I cannot even begin to explain how terrifying this is starting to become.

Hello everyone! Thanks for joining the G+ community for the March for Science in Kansas City.

I am NOT on the official committee (I am working with the people who are so it's not a rogue page) so I will either become a part of it, or will hand over control soon to someone who is on the committee. In the meantime I am VERY glad we are getting this page started and I will keep you up to date with information as it becomes available to me.

If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks!

Today, Donald Trump marked Holocaust Remembrance Day with an order against refugees, and a statement that pointedly didn't mention Jews. It talks about horror inflicted on "innocent people;" it makes no reference to how those people were chosen, or why.

And given the executive order of the day, that omission seems far clearer of a message. Among other things, it bans all refugees for the next 90 days (at which point it may be renewed); bans all Syrian refugees indefinitely; and most significantly, bars all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States, regardless of their visa status, for the next 90 days – the time required for the DHS to make a longer-term decision about this.

Today, Donald Trump marked Holocaust Remembrance Day with an order against refugees, and a statement that pointedly didn't mention Jews. It talks about horror inflicted on "innocent people;" it makes no reference to how those people were chosen, or why.

And given the executive order of the day, that omission seems far clearer of a message. Among other things, it bans all refugees for the next 90 days (at which point it may be renewed); bans all Syrian refugees indefinitely; and most significantly, bars all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States, regardless of their visa status, for the next 90 days – the time required for the DHS to make a longer-term decision about this.

To clarify what this means, it means that anyone from one of those countries who is living in the US legally, even as a permanent resident, who was outside the country today cannot return for an as-yet indefinite period. (It may also apply to dual citizens, or to US citizens who were born in those countries; the text of the order is very unclear) I am personally aware of a few hundred people who are directly affected by this, at this stage: people who were out of town for one reason or another and are now separated from their homes and families. From some back-of-the-envelope guessing, I would say that there are at least 5,000 people who were affected today, possibly much more.

Rather impressively, even Dick Cheney described this as "[going] against everything we stand for and believe in."

On the radio today, they were talking about how Muslim communities are concerned about possible "civil rights issues" going forward, but they were rather limited in the concerns they raised. Korematsu is still the law of the land; never overturned, it held that the Japanese internment camps of the 1940's were legitimate exercises of executive power. Those won't happen tomorrow, because there's no extra PR vim in it, and it's still too soon; many people would remember and object. But two years from now, or three, when elections are starting to come up? Internment of nationals of various countries doesn't seem so far-fetched.

After all, Wednesday's orders around building a wall between us and Mexico included provisions to build and staff large detention centers next to them.

And both today's order and Wednesday's instruct the DHS to publish regular reports of crimes committed by immigrants, to remind us all of what we're being protected from. If you haven't read a report like this before, and your German is OK, look up back issues of "Der Jude Kriminell;" I added a scan of one below, although it's grainy.


Oh, the other picture? Those are eyeglasses. You can still see some of that pile at Auschwitz-Birkenau; they didn't keep all of it, they didn't have room. It's next to the giant pile of human hair, and the giant pile of baby shoes.

I just want you to remember what this day remembers.

Here is a set of information on what we have right now:

- No date or location is set yet. We're waiting on D.C. to set a date, then we'll set our location.

- We will be in contact with the city.

- Yes! We'll need your help. We're working on committees. We'll need leaders and volunteers. We're getting things organized in preparation for news from D.C., but we're also on a bit of a holding pattern until we have updates.

- ANYONE is welcome. You don't have to be a scientist and this group is totally nonpartisan (we figure people from all over the spectrum will find POTUS' and Congress' actions objectionable, but don't get us wrong - this is very much a response to our new government's actions ).

This is a first draft of a non-partisan community space for Kansas City area people who love science and are interested in a sister march to the DC March for Science. We support the dissemination of knowledge, facts, and learning.
The censorship of science is dangerous and unethical.

We will march with the rest of the country when it's time to let the world know that we will be heard. After the march, we will continue to educate and support science in schools, in media, and in every day life.

Stay tuned and pitch in!

Just a reminder that we are in the middle of making history and we are being forced to take sides. One day, our future generations will look upon the unspeakable acts of violence and aggression toward people in both our country, but just as importantly, other countries, and they will want to know what we did to start or continue a revolution in the name of human-kind.

It's easy, to look back and say "why didn't more people stand up against these heinous acts?" But we are all in a time where we have the opportunity to stand up against it. We have an opportunity to be a part of those people who decided to stand up and say "no more!".

Will you be in the history books as being a part of those who chose hundreds of thousands of lives over the comfortability of standing silent in the shadows? Will you be part of the group that future generations (our children and grand children and great-grandchildren) will look upon and say "I'm glad they stepped up, I'm glad they weren't silenced!" Or will you be part of the "why didn't more people stand up?"

(Side note: FWIW, I'm not talking about our government, yet, but we can stop that from even starting if we acknowledge what is really happening here).

Btw, I do accept that Trump is president. I am even happy about at least one of his executive orders.

But MANY others are going to hurt MANY people including the ones telling me to just get over it.

I don't raise these flags for me. I'm not affected in the way many of you are (Medicare/Medicaid, social security, veteran resources and aid, vote suppression, racism-based suppression of rights, poisoned water, planned parenthood resources that help low-income women get aid to have HEALTHY babies, not just abortions, and so much more).

I raise these flags because I care about ALL of the people in this country, even if they voted for Trump. I get it. I understand why. It's ok. But what is not ok, is everything he is taking away from so many of you. It is not ok for him to use this position of power to aid his companies and business partners while hurting the American people. It is not ok for him to take funding away from LIFE SAVING programs that literally save 10s of thousands of lives a year. People do NOT deserve to die because they can't afford health care. People do NOT deserve to die because they don't have the same views as others or work the same jobs.

PEOPLE DO NOT DESERVE TO DIE.

On it!

CALL YOUR HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE OVER ACA REPEAL

The Senate narrowly approved a repeal of the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) in a surprise vote-a-rama in the early morning hours of January 12th. This now goes to the House for a vote which could happen as early as Friday.

CONTACTS

The Congressional switchboard number is: 202-224-3121
Press 2 to contact your representative. Enter 5 digit zip, press 1

or

866-948-8977 (similar interface)

ISSUES

Be prepared with why you want to keep ACA
* keep children on longer
* keep prohibition on dropping over pre existing conditions
* keep prohibitions on capping
* keep mandates
* keep medicare
* keep women & children programs
* repeal without replace means huge amounts of money, a big deficit (if you have a deficit hawk for a rep, for example

CONTEXT

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, one of the most vocal GOP opponents of voting on a repeal bill before coming up with a replacement package, voted against the budget resolution and California Sen. Dianne Feinstein was absent.

Senators were bleary-eyed as they walked quickly to the exits, wrapping up the final vote a little before 1:30 a.m. ET.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the top Democrat who led the late-night fight against a repeal, said the protest could be a sign of things to come as the fight stretches on.

"I think it's important for this country to know this was not a usual thing, this is a day which lays the groundwork for 30 million people to be thrown off their health insurance," Sanders said. "And if that happens, many of these people will die."

"We wanted to say no matter how late, we're going to stay and fight and represent our constituents -- there are so many constituencies who will be hurt by this repeal without a replace," said New York Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Democratic senators registered a somewhat subtle, but significant protest in the Senate as they cast their votes -- declaring why they were voting against the repeal, a rare move that rankled Republicans in the chamber.

The House is expected take a swift vote on the resolution, possibly as early as Friday, which will trigger congressional committees to begin crafting a second bill that would roll back major parts of Obamacare. Though it will be weeks before Congress votes on that bill, Thursday still marked a victory for the Republican Party as it moves toward overhauling the country's healthcare system.
