March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.
Join us at the Civic Plaza at 2pm for a unique day of science advocacy in conjunction with an Earth Day celebration on April 22nd, 2017. The rally will kick off promptly at 2pm with a speech from Councilor Gibson from the City of Albuquerque.
During the rally, there will be food trucks and vendors. One area for the Plaza is designated as a “Kids Area” and Explora! will have several tables set up with fun activities for adults and children, so the March for Science Albuquerque is promoting participation from all age groups. Don’t miss the “Ask A Scientist” table where members of the public can meet real scientists from the Albuquerque area and ask them questions about their respective research and what makes what they do important.
The March for Science Albuquerque needs your help! To have a successful event, we are providing the portalets at Civic Plaza (including their delivery and pickup), signage and other promotional materials, tables, chairs, a first aid tent, speakers and entertainment, entertainment equipment, and security. Please consider donating today to help support our event costs.
