Join us on April 15th, 2018

Starting at 1:00pm at District NHV

470 James Street, New Haven, CT 06513

Last year we marched to stand up and show our support of science and the scientific community. This year, the New Haven March for Science will be a celebration of science in the community and an opportunity for advocacy for scientifically sound policymaking. It will feature selections from the Yale Science Diplomats "Science in the News" series of talks, TED-talks on the science behind Connecticut's greatest challenges, an “Ask Me Anything” talk section, and organizations working to elevate the use of evidence in policymaking.

This is a FREE event with something for all age groups. Registering for the event is optional and helps us estimate attendance, but you don't need to register to attend. We welcome you to stop by for the entire event or just for a few minutes - there will be rolling demos and speakers throughout the event

WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS

The March for Science demonstrates our passion for science and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists. The incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are shared and supported by hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

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.

A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. 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.
