March for Science Sacramento
Saturday, April 14, 2018
10:30 AM - 1:30 PM
California State Capitol: 1315 10th Street
ON APRIL 14TH - Californians will unite at the California Capitol Building, West Steps, to raise their voices for SCIENCE and the value of fact-based policy. Now more than ever, science and truth are under attack by certain factions of the government, who find that the facts do not align with their policy priorities.
For more than a century the United States has been a leader in innovation and scientific research, and the current economy is driven by our technological, medical and scientific achievements. Cuts to research, education and STEM programs now threaten to undermine our competitive edge in the global economy.
Join us on April 14th at the Capitol Building, West Steps for a rally with inspiring speakers, music, and more! At noon, our thousands of science supporters will march, circling the Capitol Mall to return to the Capitol West Steps.
