Record-breaking global temperatures. Unprecedented attacks on government scientists. Growing risks to America's workers and communities. An administration that appears unwilling to accept—nevermind act on—well-established scientific facts.

Science, evidence, facts, and reason form the very foundation of a strong democracy—and they are under attack like never before. 

Now is the time to stand up for science, justice, and our democracy itself.

The Union of Concerned Scientists is proud to co-sponsor two important upcoming marches: the People's Climate March and March for Science. Details on how you can participate are below. A week of science action connects the two events—an ever-growing list of activities in Washington, DC and across the country. Stay tuned for details.

The People's Climate March

Saturday, April 29 | Washington, DC

The March for Science

Saturday, April 22 | Washington, DC and locations across the US

The March for Science features hundreds of local events across the country and around the world, including a rally and teach-in on the National Mall in Washington, DC. 

Join UCS as we rally in support of science and evidence-based policy making. If you don’t live near DC, find one of the hundreds of satellite marches planned around the world. 

The March for Science is a celebration of science. It's not about scientists or politicians—it is about the very real role that science plays in all of our lives and the essential role it must play in shaping decisions and policies that affect us all.
