Professionals representing a variety of fields, like education, medicine and research, are rallying in Peoria this weekend in defense of science.
The Peoria Rally for Science is one of several hundred marches across the country scheduled Sat., which is also Earth Day.
Megan Pulley helped organize the march in Peoria. Pulley says as an educator, she fears science and evidence are increasingly ignored to leverage certain political agendas.
“It has gotten tied up in politics. It has been politicized, it has been used more by some than others,” Pulley said.
