March for Science - April 22

March for Science

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.

"ON APRIL 22, 2017, WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS"

There are over 400 regional marches.  Find one near you on the March for Science web site.
