It's been a year since scientists and their supporters gathered all over the world to March for Science, advocating for change and to demand public officials embrace evidence-based policy. The rallies drew some impressive crowds, and further proved just how many people aren't content to sit idly by while the government actively pushes back against proven research. The events around the globe were also such a success that they're happening again this year.
On Saturday, April 14, thousands of people are expected to descend upon Washington, DC for the national March for Science, while some 230 other satellite events around the world are also scheduled to take place, with particularly big rallies planned in places like New York City and Los Angeles. And while you may feel compelled to turn out to show your support and add your voice to the mix, it's always a bit tough to figure out how best to get a message across in a sea of signs and chants.
