Spokane will host the first March for Science on Earth Day, April 22, from 1-5 p.m. at the Riverfront Park Clock Tower.
The march’s mission states that it supports “robustly funded and publically communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity.” Its goals are to humanize science, partner with the public, advocate for inclusive and accessible science, support scientists, and affirm science as a democratic value.
Marches will take place throughout the U.S. on April 22, including one in Washington D.C., in response to what is often seen as the Trump administration’s “anti-science stance,” and skepticism about global warming and evolution, according to “The Guardian.”
