The March For Science was a nationwide event that took place on April 22, and it is a march that celebrates all things science. It gives voice to the need for public figures and government officials to enact policy and pass laws that work not simply for the good of the people, but for the good of scientific interest as a whole.
This march gave voice to the real role that science plays in our lives every single day, and it promoted the need for constant research and further involvement and funding to encourage this research that gives us such valuable insight into the world around us. Things that save lives, protect our planet, and give us medications that enable us to live well into our 90s were celebrated as hundreds of thousands of people gathered across the globe to march. People everywhere gave this movement a voice that shouted, “This planet has a life, just like us, and we are capable of ripping its life away with our actions!”
It brought a fighting voice to many of the policies President Donald Trump has enacted and repealed that will have devastating consequences on the environment, and has raised concerns as to whether or not scientists should play an active role in politics, what with many prominent political figures discrediting valid scientific foundations and facts.
The March for Science “champions and defends science and scientific integrity,” and no one else understands that concept better than the people holding these beautiful signs found at the marches across the country.
