Outside of Indianapolis along Interstate 70, a giant billboard reads “Thank God. Vote for Science.”
The sign is one of four nationwide, with the other three positioned on Interstate 95, according to Class Action, a collective that created the signs posted through the month of September.
The effort was funded by a grant through the Union of Concerned Scientists and its 500,000 supporters interested in confronting the presidential administration’s efforts to sideline science.
The public art project breaks down ideological divisions and asserts that spiritual and rational thinking can co-exist in a democratic society, according to Class Action. Organizers say the billboard series uses vernacular language and patriotic colors to remind citizens that the mid-term elections are “critical regarding upcoming decisions on science-based policies.”
