What is the Scientists' March on Washington

UPDATE: 4:00 1-24-16 : Since 10am today, over 50 people have volunteered to help make this event a reality! We're going to get back to everyone and try to make sure that everyone's time is put to the best use possible. A single google hangout looks unfeasible if volunteers keep coming in at this rate until Saturday, so we're working ways to break into working groups. Stay tuned!

We accept the following as provisionally true:

  • The Earth is becoming warmer due to human action.
  • The diversity of life arose by evolution.
  • An American government that ignores science to pursue ideological agendas threatens not only the environment of which humans are a part, but America itself.
  • Scientific research in the United States is underfunded.
  • Politicians who devalue expertise risk making decisions that do not reflect reality.

Who can participate:

Science is a methodology and a way of thinking. Anyone who uses and values these tools for understanding the world, not just professional scientists, may participate.

How can I help?
We are still in the very early stages of organizing this event. We need all the help we can get, especially from people with expertise in the following areas:

  • Web Design
  • Logo/Graphic design
  • Law, incorporation of a not-for-profit
  • Fundraising
  • Public relations and media relations
  • Social media management
  • Organizing large events
  • Acquiring permits in DC
  • Contacts with possible speakers

You don’t need to be a professional scientist to participate. Just fill out this google form: https://goo.gl/forms/zAdY02dBEz3Ykii42 and please let us know how you can help.

How can I donate?
You can’t yet. We’re working on figuring out a legal framework that will allow you to donate.

When will it be?

We’re still in the very earliest stages. The date will be announced as soon as it is available.

Isn’t science apolitical?

Yes. Scientists, however are not. The march is non-partisan, however it is intended to have 
an impact on policy makers
