March for Science

Location: 
Washington, DC
Event Date: 
Saturday, April 22, 2017

The March for Science event in Washington, D.C., along with similar activities across the country and around the world on Saturday, April 22, provided opportunities for scientists from all disciplines to elevate their level of civic engagement and amplify how science serves society, accelerating medical progress, saving lives and creating a better world for the next generation. 

In more than 600 locations worldwide, thousands of people marched for science as citizens and scientists, parents and children, technicians and teachers, workers and retirees, doctors and patients. They marched to say our collective future is more hopeful with science – and at risk without it. They affirmed that science is exciting, essential to human well-being and economic prosperity, and a foundation for sound policy. 

In addition to supporting new discoveries and innovations, Research!America and other partner organizations conducted of outreach programs in cities and countries worldwide, helping hundreds of thousands of members become ever more involved in public engagement.
