This year, tens of thousands of people across the country are expected to spend Earth Day participating in the March for Science.  The main event will be held in DC, but over 600 cities spanning 6 continents have coordinated satellite marches.


Rush Holt, head of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, stated that the decision to participate in the March for Science was not just a reaction to policies made under the Trump administration, but rather a reaction to the idea that, “evidence has been crowded out by ideology and opinion in public debate and policymaking.”

The mission of the march is to, “unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.”
