March for Science – Tucson

April 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


March for Science – Tucson

Saturday, April 22nd
10:00AM – 2:00PM
El Presidio Plaza Park
175 W. Alameda St., South Tucson, AZ 85701

The March for Science on Saturday, April 22, sounds a call to support and safeguard the

scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among

scientists. 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.

The primary march will be in Washington, DC, but satellite marches are occurring across

the nation, including in several Arizona cities. We encourage you to join your local march!

The Tucson Rally for Science at El Presidio will include rousing speakers, 20+ engaging

science booths, and lively entertainment! This is our time to take a stand, so let's shake the

ground at El Presidio! Some people are taking the initiative to form groups that will march

into El Presidio on sidewalks from all directions. We appreciate the many ways you want to

demonstrate your support, and we'll be there to welcome you at El Presidio! See you there!

The mission is to (1) advocate for the role of science in our lives, (2) send the message to

current and future presidents that we need research-based legislation and policy, and (3)

show that we want more funding for STEAM programs and agencies.
