March For Science
April 22, 2017 - 10 AM
NFU group meeting TBD for April 22.
The March for Science is a call for politicians to implement science based policies, as well as a public celebration of science and the enormous public service it provides in our democracy, our economy, and our daily lives. The rally will feature main stage speakers, including NFU President Roger Johnson, and several large teach-in tents around the Mall where scientists, educators, and leaders from a wide variety of disciplines will discuss their work, effective science communication strategies, and training in public advocacy.

At 11:00am: We will gather in front of the Capitol Building in contingents that spell out the values we share: justice, truth, democracy, faith and more.
