The March for Science will take place on April 22, 2017 in Washington D.C. On the same day, there will be a satellite March for Science Rally here in Lafayette, Indiana. This event will be held at Riehly Plaza, 200 N 2nd St., in downtown Lafayette, from 1 - 4PM. More information on the details of this event will be posted soon. If you would like to be a volunteer to help with set-up, clean-up, or general duties on the day of the rally, please send me a message and we will contact you.
"The March for Science champions robustly 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 political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest."
"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. 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."
