The American Historical Association endorses the National March for Science on April 22, 2017. History shares with the sciences its identification as an evidence-based discipline that promotes the common good through research, free inquiry, and education. We endorse robust funding of research, public communication of findings, and evidence-based policies in the public interest. We stand in solidarity with our colleagues in the sciences in their reminder that “science is everywhere and affects everyone.”
