One Of The Largest Gatherings In The Global Movement, Chicagoans Show Up United For Science And Evidence Based Policies

CHICAGO, IL: The March for Science Chicago took place on April 22, 2017. The crowds drew estimates of nearly 60,000 marchers united under the March’s nonpartisan mission and evidence-based policies that are built on an ethical approach to science.

Dr. Lee Bitsoi, Karen R. Weigert, Garry Cooper, PhD, 8th Grader Fredy Lopez, March For Science Chicago Directors Adam Arcus and Kristian Aloma, and Keynote Speaker Emily Graslie all spoke to the gathering of scientists, science enthusiasts, and science supporters early on Saturday morning.

Chicagoans then marched to Museum Campus at the foot of The Field Museum’s South Steps, where they took their next step in supporting and engaging science. Over fifty organizations, institutions, researchers, and scientists gathered at tables with the energized crowds and held conversations about science, recruited volunteers, and discussed potential citizen science efforts in Chicago.

March For Science Chicago now continues its mission of bridging the widening gap between the public and the science that serves it through community involvement, advocacy, design, and science communication. For more information visit: sciencemarchchicago.org
