Boston April 22: March for Science

“The March for Science demonstrates our passion for science and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community.
It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
We are people who value science and recognize how science serves. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone.”
