***OFFICIAL TIME AND LOCATION TO BE ANNOUNCED***
SCIENCE, NOT SILENCE
The March for Science is a celebration of 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. 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, WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS.
Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide and a teach-in at the National Mall, but it is imperative to continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels - from local schools to federal agencies - throughout the world.
