"It is time for scientists, science enthusiasts, and concerned citizens to come together to make ourselves heard!"

Please Join us on Earth Day in Joplin Missouri, April 22nd at 11am in Downtown Joplin.

"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."

Satellite Marches are solidarity events inspired by the March for Science, and organized by volunteers around the world. If you can't make it to Washington, D.C. then you can join or host our Satellite March in Downtown Joplin. There are marches being planned across the United States and internationally. 

Please Share this event with collegues, friends and family! 

We will be working with the city and will update this event with more specifics as they become available.
