March For Science Fullerton, CA
The Fullerton March for Science event will begin a 9 AM in front of City Hall 303 W. Commonwealth with a rally and some short speeches. Then we will start to march.
Following a productive meeting with city officials today (4/6/17) a tentative route has been agreed to. We will march north on Highland Avenue from City Hall, turn right onto Amerige Avenue, march east on Amerige to Harbor Blvd, then turn left onto Harbor Blvd, march north on Harbor to Wilshire, turn right on to Wilshire, and march east to the Downtown Plaza at 125 E. Wilshire, where the march will teriminate with another rally. The city wll provide staff to institute rolling traffic closures along the route, so that marchers can walk safely along the route streets.
Public restroom facilities will be available near the Downtown Plaza.
This is a sister march to the DC March for Science, and we will follow the same principles and goals (https://www.marchforscience.com/mission-and-vision/). The march is non-partisan, and we welcome all those who support our principles and goals. Again, this is a NON-PARTISAN event, and we welcome everyone who supports science and adequate funding for scientific and medical research.
Special note for those with physical limitations: If you are unable to march we encourage you to continue to rally in front of City Hall following the program.
We will have some signs available for you to pick up at the beginning of the event, but we encourage as many of you as possible to bring your own home-made signs and posters that express your support for scientific and medical research in your own words.
We also need 15 or so VOLUNTEERS to serve as march guides/monitors to make sure that marchers don’t block vehicle or pedestrian traffic and remain safe. Contact one of the organizers if you would like to volunteer.
After march activities – downtown Fullerton has some great restaurants. Stay and enjoy lunch in our historic downtown area. Also be sure to contact your representatives in Congress to encourage them to fund scientific and medical research adequately.
