2018 March for Science Boston

  • Christopher Columbus Park 110 Atlantic Avenue Boston, MA, 02110 United States (map)

At the 2017 March for Science, tens of thousands of us came together to defend science against the assault by leaders in our federal government, and to proclaim the importance of science in public policy and celebrate the discovery, understanding, and sharing of scientific knowledge as crucial to the success, health, and safety of the human race. Together, we were part of more than one million people around the world who gathered together in the largest event for science advocacy in history.

On Saturday, April 14th, we will continue to use the momentum of last year’s march to once again lift up these same themes and ideals, but we won't stop there. In 2018, we'll also take the offensive and rally behind specific climate legislation that will advance certain science- and evidence-based policy in the Massachusetts state legislature, with an eye to passage this year. In 2018 in Massachusetts, science is striking back!


Please note that this year's rally will still contain a broader focus on the importance of science in policy, the need for well-funded scientific research, and the importance of diversity and inclusion within the sciences, but for Boston, our theme this year will be around climate science, and advancing science-based climate policy in the Massachusetts State Legislature.
