Rochester March for Science is a satellite march in support of the March for Science in Washington, D.C. on the same day. Please visit the informative national organization's website to learn about the national mission and diversity principles.
We fully support and adhere to all of the national organization's statements and policies, and have also developed our own Rochester March for Science goals and principles, which are stated below:
By marching, we take one of many steps to become more active in our communities and in democratic life. We hold our leaders--both in science and in politics--accountable to the highest standards of honesty, fairness, and integrity. We gather together to send a message: we will all work to ensure that the scientific community is making our democracy stronger.
We strive to demonstrate the many ways that science is practiced by and for us all.
Engage the public
We endeavor to engage with the public in an open dialogue about the value and potential of science.
We seek to affirm science as a vital component of a free society, spurring innovation, critical thinking, increased understanding, and better, healthier lives for all people.
