The March for Science
April 22, 2017 3:00 PM
Event Type: Family friendly march, free and open to the public. No RSVP.
Location: Bucky Statue, north side of Yavapai County Courthouse, Gurley St, Prescott
Description: The March for Science advocates for evidence-based policymaking, science education, research funding, and inclusive and accessible science. Science plays a vital role in our health, safety, economies, and governments. Science, scientists, and evidence-based policymaking are under attack. Budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets, and threats to dismantle government agencies harm us all, putting our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs at risk. The March for Science is an opportunity for people who support science – science advocates, science educators, scientists, and concerned citizens – to take a public stand and be counted. The march is supported by more than 170 partner organizations. The national event at The National Mall in Washington, DC is supported by over 425 satellite marches around the world. Marchers will circulate around the square following the Earth Day celebration. For more information, call 928-308-1003.
