Science communication is important, but can be convoluted to non-scientists. In the wake of fake news and information wars, more suspicion (vaccines) around science and denial (climate change) has emerged, resulting in fear and mistrust. Together, we can create a brighter future where science is used equitably and ethically; where communities see themselves and their values reflected in the scientific community, and there is no political capital in diminishing the value in scientific inquiry.
