Scientists and science lovers on six continents will march on Earth Day, April 22nd, to show legislators the importance of science and scientists in policy-making. The March for Science – Charleston is a sister event to the March for Science – Washington, D.C.
Marchers will meet at 1 pm in three locations before marching on sidewalks to Liberty Square at the South Carolina Aquarium for a 2 pm non-partisan rally.
Meeting locations are Marion Square, the Four Corners of Law, and the Visitors Center. Marchers are asked to:
- Bring a water bottle
- Consider wearing a nametag with your name, science interest, and zip code. (The zip code lets legislators know you are their constituents)
- Display a non-partisan, science-related sign
- Share your participation on social media with the hashtags #sciencemarch #marchforscience and #marchforscienceCHS.
