The Raleigh March for Science is a nonpartisan event that will attract scientists, students, activists and stargazers to celebrate and stand up for science. Join us on Saturday, April 14, at Halifax Mall in downtown Raleigh.
In addition to a program of prominent speakers, a Kids for Science Corner will host hands-on science fun, and there will be tables for voter registration and various advocacy groups. The Raleigh Kids March for Science kicks off the rally with a parade inside Halifax Mall led by kids and accompanied by the Paperhand Puppet Intervention.
This year’s theme, Science for Everyone – Everyone for Science, highlights the importance of making science accessible to people from all backgrounds, while shining a light on the pivotal role that evidence-based science plays in protecting North Carolina’s natural resources.
In 2017, more than 5,000 people from the Triangle gathered in solidarity with one million people at 600 locations worldwide for the March for Science, marking the largest event for science advocacy in history. This year, 200 cities have already signed on to unite in a day for science advocacy.
