April 22, 2017: Boston March for Science

This is the Boston, MA rally being held in parallel to the Scientists March on Washington DC. This page is simply an event page so you can get time, date, and location updates. Please JOIN OUR GROUP for discussion, calls to action, volunteering opportunities, and other ways to be involved. đŸ™‚

We have also updated our mission statement in solidarity with the D.C. organizers (now updated in the group’s description, and included below).

We would like to again emphasize that the focus of this event is a non-partisan support for science. While we understand that politics may be a motivator for involvement by some participants, the core goal of this event will continue to be the show of support for science.

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, non-partisan 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. This group is inclusive of all individuals and types of science!
