March for Science calls all supporters of science-based public policy, open scientific data sharing, science literacy, public funding for basic research, and equality/diversity in science to gather on earth day, joining over 175 simultaneous events world-wide!

The post-rally optional March will trace the lake path.
“I march to ensure that the US scientific workforce looks like the US populus, and that the US scientific infrastructure ensures equity and access for all.” - Kevin Keys
