March for Science


We'll stand in solidarity with friends and allies around the world to support and defend all things SCIENCE! It's more than just important. We couldn't live without it.

WHY: The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.

WHAT: Science, scientists, and evidence-based policymaking are under attack. Budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets, and threats to dismantle government agencies harm us all, putting our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs at risk. It is time for people who support science to take a public stand and be counted.

HOW: We are building a broad, nonpartisan, and diverse coalition of organizations and individuals who stand up for science. We are advocating for evidence-based policymaking, science education, research funding, and inclusive and accessible science. All with your support!
