March For Science- Lansing

Come and #MarchForScienceLansing

SCIENCE, NOT SILENCE

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.

We are a rally type protest. We will not be holding an actual march through the street. Simply gather on the lawn of the Capitol Building at 1pm on Earth Day April 22, 2017

Our speakers begin at 1pm. After our speakers, stay for our scientist “teach-ins”, kid’s science activities, a native species exhibit, Ally Organization information booths, and science themed performers.
