MARCH FOR SCIENCE LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES APRIL 22, 2017 AS MARCH FOR SCIENCE DAY

February 07, 2017 (Las Vegas, NV)— March For Science Las Vegas today announced April 22, 2017 as the date of the march. The event will take place between 11 am and 2 pm at a location to be determined. This solidarity event is for those who cannot make it to Washington D.C for our national march.

The March for Science is a peaceful and non-partisan gathering of scientists, science enthusiasts, and anyone who value the progress of science and human knowledge. It is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Our goal is to emphasize the role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.

The March for Science started after a series of events that cause heightened worry among scientists, as the politicization of science gave policymakers permission to reject overwhelming scientific evidence while governing. By marching, we show our support for scientific research and encourage evidence-based policies and regulations from our political leaders in Washington.

Recent events portrayed an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery. The March For Science Las Vegas aims at highlighting the following core principles:

·          strengthen public support for science and scientific research

·          maintain funding for scientific research and its applications

·          enact evidence-based policy and regulations in the public interest

·          advocate for open, inclusive and accessible science and science communication

On April 22, 2017, March For Science Las Vegas will march in support of science alongside our national and city marches.
