March for Science

The March for science

The March for Science on April 22 in Washington, D.C. and cities across the country and abroad is a celebration of the countless ways science touches society and improves lives.

Science has fostered many societal advances ranging from the eradication of polio to cutting-edge data technology to water quality improvements. We encourage everyone who cares about our scientific enterprise to call on policymakers to enact funding and policies to support public and private sector research. 

“By shining a light on science, we can create a stronger foundation for science funding, science education and science leadership,” said Research!America president and CEO Mary Woolley. “Ultimately, we hope this will be the beginning of a sustained effort that will empower champions of science across the political spectrum, and stimulate greater public support of science.”

March for Science partners include Research!America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Sigma Xi, Society for Neuroscience, Association for Research in Vision & Ophthalmology, American Society for Cell Biology, Consortium of Social Science Associations and ScienceDebate, among others.

Research!America will be at March for Science events in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, CA, Oklahoma City, OK and Salt Lake City, UT.
