11:00 am – March starts leaving from UMM’s Science Building down into town and then back up

MISSION of March for Science (which is taking place in 61 countries and currently has 400 different march locations): “The 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.”

Please check the national March for Science site for more information on inclusion (including a virtual march), the principles & goals of MfS, and the non-violence statement.
