March for Science Lansing
Science. Not Silence.
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.
This a rally type protest. An actual march through the street will not happen here. Simply gather on the lawn of the Capitol Building at 1:00 PM on Earth Day April 22, 2017
Speakers begin at 1:00 PM. After the speakers, stay for scientist "teach-ins", kid's science activities, a native species exhibit, ally organization information booths, science-themed performers.
