VIDEO: Geeks brave rain to March for Science


– Peaceful protesters in hundreds of cities around the globe gathered on Earth Day, April 22, to voice their support for evidence-based policies and funding for scientific research at the March for Science.

In Washington, thousands of participants gathered on the rainy National Mall for teach-ins and speeches, then marched from the Washington Monument to Capitol Hill. A key concern for marchers here was cuts in science agency funding in the Trump administration’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2018.

Organizers now are calling on supporters to participate in a week of action to continue to demonstrate widespread support for their positions.
