About Us

March for Science Albuquerque is organized and operated for exclusively charitable and educational purposes as limited by 26 U.S.C.S. ยง 501(c)(3).

March for Science Albuquerque supports robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We are uniting as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

One of the goals of March for Science Albuquerque is to educate the public on the role of science in daily life, as well as the need to respect and encourage research that creates insight about the world in which we live. March for Science Albuquerque encourages people to appreciate and engage with science through education and communication. The most effective way to protect science is to encourage the public to understand, value, and invest in it. March for Science Albuquerque aims to generate mutual respect between scientists and their communities by inspiring scientists to reach out to their communities to share their research and its impact. We encourage scientists, in turn, to listen to their communities and consider the perspective of the people they serve.

At its core, science is a tool for seeking answers and exploring the unknown. March for Science Albuquerque does not promote science as serving special interests, nor does it promote science being rejected based on personal convictions. However, science can and should influence public policy and guide our long-term decision-making. The March for Science thus champions and defends nonpartisan science and scientific integrity.
