MARCH FOR SCIENCE

Unity in celebration of science

Science, not silence

March for Science is an effort comprised of dozens of independent, nonpartisan coordinators. Our message is a non-partisan celebration of science and empiricism. In tumultuous times, when everything seems to be an opportunity for partisan divide, we aim to show that science is not an issue that separates people or politicians on either side of the aisle. We can all unify behind the precept that observation, deduction, reproducible results, and peer-review mark the pinnacle of human intellect and that the scientific method is what has created our way of life as we know it today. It will be what makes our tomorrow even better. As such, we will be gathering in Hartford, CT in solidarity with our friends, family, colleagues, and peers around the world on April 22, 2017. Our mission statement is as follows:

THE MARCH FOR SCIENCE CHAMPIONS PUBLICLY-FUNDED AND PUBLICLY-COMMUNICATED SCIENCE AS A PILLAR OF HUMAN FREEDOM AND PROSPERITY. WE UNITE AS A DIVERSE, NONPARTISAN GROUP TO CALL FOR SCIENCE THAT UPHOLDS THE COMMON GOOD, TO CELEBRATE THE TOTALITY OF OUR SOCIETY THAT IS AFFECTED BY SCIENCE, AND TO PROMOTE EVIDENCE-BASED POLICIES IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
