March for Science New York City 

April 22 @ 12:00 am11:30 pm

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.

It is time for peo­ple who sup­port sci­en­tific research and evi­dence-based poli­cies to take a pub­lic stand and be count­ed.
