About Us

We are a rally in support of the March of Science, an event that
celebrates the public discovery, distribution, and understanding of scientific knowledge as crucial to the freedom, success, health, and safety of life on this planet.

We are a nonpartisan group, marching to champion for action in the following areas: Literacy, Communication, Policy, and Investment.

We believe that by providing opportunities for science communication and improving science literacy it will provide a platform for the public to make informed decisions about the world around them.

Universal Literacy
A well-informed community is essential to a free and successful society. We support education to promote broad public knowledge and discussion of scientific work. As professionals, parents, and community-engaged volunteers, we enthusiastically contribute our time and expertise to helping children and students of all ages engage with the physical universe and biological world.

Open Communication
Publicly-funded scientists have a responsibility to communicate their research and public outreach and accessibility of scientific knowledge should be encouraged. Communication of scientific findings and their implications must not be suppressed.

Informed Policy
Public policy should be guided by peer-reviewed evidence and scientific consensus. Public policy must enable scientists to communicate the results from their publicly-funded research and must support literacy in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Stable Investment
A long-term, strategic approach to investment in scientific research and development is essential for driving true innovation. Government commitment to stable science funding policy will deliver solutions to complex challenges, promoting prosperity for all.
