About:
The March for Science is a celebration of science. Science benefits and impacts every aspect of humanity including healthcare, technology and the environment. The public depends on peer-reviewed studies to help shape policy for the betterment of future generations. We welcome all science supporters from all walks of life to join those who embrace science, dedicate their professions to research and value the processes that inform evidence-based inquiry.

Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations.

We speak up now because all of these values are currently at risk. When science is threatened, so is the society that scientists uphold and protect.

Mission Statement:
The March for Science champions publicly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

Diversity:
We must work to make science available to everyone and encouraging individuals of all backgrounds to pursue science careers. A diverse group of scientists produces increasingly diverse research, which broadens, strengthens and enriches scientific inquiry, and therefore, our understanding of the world.
