March for Science Sacramento is one of over 500 satellite marches being held in conjunction with the national March for Science on Washington DC. The mission of these marches is to celebrate a passion for science and to support and safeguard the use of science and the scientific community. The goals for the marches include advocating for open, inclusive, and accessible science, affirming scientific research as an essential part of a working democracy and, of course, supporting scientists.
“We know that good science can make the world better; better policies, better investments, deeper understanding, wonder, and curiosity. We want to inspire scientists and regulators who feel under attack to keep working for the public good; to inspire communities to develop and support leaders who care about how things really work; to inspire people to recognize the cumulative contributions of science in their lives; and to inspire people to make science as diverse, inclusive, connected, and helpful as it can be,” say March for Science Sacramento lead organizers Megan Fidell and James Nachbaur. “The March for Science is a chance for people who support scientific research and evidence-based decisions to take a public stand.”
