The day is almost here! Tomorrow, May 19, join us at noon in Mears Park to Rally for Science! It's never been more important to advocate for science and evidence-based policy. We have an exciting program lined up. At noon, enjoy family friendly activities, and take the opportunity to meet with science and advocacy organizations! At 1pm, hear our amazing speakers talk about the importance of science in education, the environment, public health and more! Afterwards, join your organizers for a pint at Tin Whisker's Brewing to help raise money for our work.
We are committed to planning a Rally that all can attend. We will provide an ASL interpreter, a lactation station, and accessible seating.
Noon: Action, Learning and Family Fun
Before hearing our dynamic speakers, let's gather to take action and learn! Meet with organizations that advocate for public health and the environment. Take the pledge to Vote for Science, and make sure to get yourself registered to vote. We'll also have a number of kid-friendly activities lined up: sign-making, free face-painting and science-themed coloring. Bring the whole family!
