  • Seeking new and radical solutions for problems of energy, environment, agriculture, public health, and workplace safety
  • Resisting science that serves corporate profit and military domination
  • Exposing individuals, institutions, and organizations who develop and use STEM for exploitation, oppression, profiteering, war, and environmental destruction
  • Opposing racism & white supremacy, sexism & patriarchy, homophobia & cisgenderism, ageism & ableism within STEM
  • Combating efforts to delegitimize, censor, and deny evidence-based scientific findings
