NeuroEducate founder Elizabeth Ricker was profiled in the MIT Press book, Science Not Silence.
Hong Kong Free Press described the book as one of the “world’s best human rights books” of 2018.
Barbara Kiser at Nature described it as "a riposte to the US administration’s ennui around research".
The Times Higher Education described it as "a heartening collection of accounts by more than 40 people who participated in worldwide demonstrations for science".
"From Antarctica to the North Pole, from under the sea to the top of Mt. Everest, whether alone or alongside thousands, over one million people worldwide have taken to the streets to March for Science – and each of them has a story to tell.
A citizen scientist with advanced ALS spent countless hours creating an avatar using technology that tracks his eye movements, so that he could give a speech. Couples carrying babies born using in vitro fertilization dressed them in shirts that said “Made By Science”. The former US Chief Data Scientist spoke about what really makes America great. Activists championed the ways science should serve marginalized communities. Artists created stunning signs to share with everyone, patients marched with the doctors that saved them, and scientists marched with the communities that support them.
Through signs, artwork, stories, and photographs, Science Not Silence shares a sample of the voices that continue to breathe life into the March for Science movement. Every story is a call to action to continue protecting the role of science in our policies, our classrooms, and our neighborhoods. The march was just the beginning. Now the real work begins.
Science Not Silence celebrates the success of the movement, amplifies the passion and creativity of its supporters, and reminds everyone how important it is to keep marching."
