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. 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.

Light­foot Mar­ket is a pop-up event for sus­tain­able busi­ness­es and con­sci­en­tious shop­pers. We cre­at­ed this mar­ket to show­case ven­dors and prod­ucts with a strong com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­i­ty. While that word gets thrown around a lot, to us “sus­tain­abil­i­ty” refers to a company’s envi­ron­men­tal, social and eco­nom­ic ini­tia­tives that not only cre­ate suc­cess­ful long-term busi­ness goals, but also con­tribute to the well-being of our plan­et and its com­mu­ni­ties.

You’ll find thought­ful­ly curat­ed goods, food, speak­ers and more.
