Have you heard about Chemists Without Borders? They are an organization founded in 2004 by Bego Gerber and Steve Chambreau as a result of a letter ("An Ailing Cure") that Bego sent to the editor of Chemical and Engineering News in September 2004. Members of Chemists Without Borders share their interest to solve humanitarian problems by mobilizing the resources and expertise of the global chemistry community and its networks.

We march for young chemists around the world so their voices can be heard. We march because some of the largest scientific advancements have been made in the face of adversity. We march because we believe that everyone should have the right to share their intellectual ideas and not be silenced. We march so that all young people regardless of gender or identity know that they too can be chemists. And doctors, and astronauts. We march because chemists can guarantee the best pha
