The March for Science will be held on Earth Day, April 22, 2017, in Washington, D.C. and at several hundred satellite locations throughout the United States and around the world. Thousands of scientists and scientific-minded individuals will be marching in solidarity to support the work of the scientific community and the critical role it plays in formulating sound, evidence-based public policy, particularly in the realms of public health and environmental protection.
The March for Science "champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science," and its stated goals for the upcoming event are to:
humanize science; partner with the public; advocate for open, inclusive, and accessible science; support scientists; and, affirm science as a democratic value.Further information about the movement's goals and principles, as well details about local marches, can be found on the March for Science web site. Be there or be square!
