March for Science New York City is a non-partisan platform formed by the greater scientific community. We stand for: 1) The open access of scientific information to the general public. 2) The use of science for the common good and in the preservation of an informed democracy. 3) The protection of human and environmental rights.
The New York City March for Science recognizes the importance of an informed democracy in order to maintain a free, healthy, happy, and accessible society. That is why we come together as a community of non-partisan scientists and friends to show the importance of protecting and promoting people’s rights, the public’s access to scientific information, the environment in which we exist, and scientific research. We hope to use this march to spark increased community involvement for the promotion of science for the common good through sustained action.
