AAA Joins Forces with March for Science

The American Anthropological Association (AAA) joins fellow scientific, academic, and educational institutions in support of the national March for Science rally and teach-in in Washington, D.C. on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22.

The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. AAA proudly supports the call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders, and policy makers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

In just the last month since the concept of a March for Science went viral online, 287 satellite marches across the globe have been organized with more coming online every day, and more than 50,000 volunteers have responded to offer assistance.

March organizers also launched a social media campaign that highlights how scientists serve their communities. #ScienceServes showcases the many ways science saves lives, protects communities and advances the public interest. Scientists perform critical civic duties and the march will be an opportunity to make their valuable public service role more visible.

Additional information about the March for Science and its partners can be found on the March website.
