Science is everywhere and affects everyone.
MFS Sacramento marches in solidarity with the global March for Science movement. In 2017, more than a million people worldwide participated in support of science and evidence-based policy.
This year MFS Sacramento also marches in partnership and solidarity with Tax March Sacramento.
Please join us! You don't have to be a scientist. Ours goals include advocating for open, inclusive, and accessible science, affirming scientific research as an essential part of a working democracy, and supporting scientists and science education.
Recent policy changes have called science-based information into question. Science is not a partisan issue. Science is fact-based and provides objective results. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted!
We come from all walks of life. We are of different races, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, political perspectives, and nationalities - and we are united through our respect for science and our belief that it is crucial to the health and success of our society and our planet. Our diverse opinions, perspectives, and ideas are critical to the scientific process and are our greatest strength.
ON APRIL 14, 2018, WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS.
Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement started with, but does not end with a march. It is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels - from local schools to federal agencies - throughout the world and to call on our leaders to enact evidence-based policy to benefit all of our communities.
