March for Science is a series of rallies and marches set to be held in Washington, D.C. and over 500 cities across the world on April 22, 2017. March for Science is a celebration of science. It's not only about scientists and politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world. It is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.
“The goal of the march is to get people excited about the role of science in society and ready to agitate for science in policy. We want to channel that passion into a lasting movement that breaks down the barriers between scientists and their communities.” Caroline Weinberg, national co-chair of the march and a health educator and advocate, said in an interview with the Scientific American.
