Scientists, educators, and science supporters are returning to the streets of Seattle to raise their collective voices in support of science and evidence-based policies in the second annual March for Science - Seattle. This year’s theme is "Science, Not Silenced" to reflect the MFSS's commitmment to bringing underrepresented voices in science—women, people of color, teens, and the marginalized—to the forefront.
The pre-march rally starts at 10am at Cal Anderson Park in Seattle and will feature speakers from all ages, backgrounds, and sectors of society, including sixteen-year-old climate activist Latina Jamie Margolin and kindergartner Geneva Betnel who heads up an campaign to collect straws from on our beaches and in our oceans.
A number of scientific and environmental sponsors will be hosting tables at the pre-march rally and marchers will enjoy live music along the two-mile route to the Seattle Center to keep in time to and make their voices heard.
This year’s rally will feature a food drive for the those who suffer from food insecurity throughout King County. Please bring food or cash donations for Northwest Harvest according the specifications listed at marchforscienceseattle.org/food-drive/.
Order your MFSS t-shirts at marchforscienceseattle.org/apparel/. T-shirts will not be available the day of the march.
The March is a family event—scientists, future scientists, and science supporters are all welcome, with women, people of color, minorities, and teens especially urged to attend. Participants are encouraged to bring signs, banners, and moderately-sized flags with positive messages about science. Signs should be mounted on cardboard posts—poles and wooden posts are discouraged.
