GAYS MILLS - Crawford Stewardship Project invites community members to a presentation and discussion titled ‘Democracy and Science Under Siege’ on Friday, Oct. 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Gays Mills Community Commerce Center in the Boardroom.
‘Democracy and Science Under Siege’ will consist of a presentation from Matt Rothschild, Executive Director of Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. The presentation will focus on the subversion of democracy and the denial of science within decisions made on local, state and national levels.
