On Earth Day 2017, scientists and science enthusiasts around the globe, including 394 satellite marches in every major US city and 37 other countries, gathered to march in the name of science. Mark your calendars for the second March for Science RI event! Once again we will stand together to champion the extensive enhancing effects of science everywhere, for the free exchange of scientific information benefitting everyone, and in protest of the censorship of publicly funded research.
March for Science is non-partisan. The greatest objective of March for Science is to persuade the public to demand our elected officials enact evidence based policies. In order to accomplish this task, our aim is to raise awareness of how science works, why it is effective in sorting fiction from reality, and what scientists do to better the lives of everyone.
