Saturday March for Science in Washington and around the World - Andrew Kreighbaum, Inside Higher Ed

The national march in D.C. this Saturday, along with satellite events across the country (and around the world) likely won’t match the turnout of the Women’s March on Jan. 21 -- a protest some observers speculated was among the largest in U.S. history. But the March for Science has received intense levels of interest since organizers in January began discussing the possibility and subsequently launched Facebook and Twitter accounts. Rush Holt, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, said this week that the March for Science is a nonpartisan event that will focus on a positive message about what’s needed for science to thrive. "It's time to get off the sidelines and make a difference." https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/04/21/university-researchers-and-scientists-make-rare-political-engagement-over-fears
