A March for Science will take place in Washington D.C. on Earth Day, April 22.
Like the Women's March on Washington in January, organizers want the March for Science to be a nonpartisan protest with a focus on support for science-based policy and diversity, CNN reported. Scientists supporting the march are worried about the Trump administration's stance on climate change, and other science policies.
Scientists planned their own march after a user posted on reddit that "There needs to be a scientists' march on Washington."
"Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a crucial and urgent matter," the March for Science website reads, "It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted."
The March for Science isn't just going to be in Washington. Marches are being planned all over the country and internationally. Even Switzerland.
