There is no shortage of marches and protests these days (and you should keep an eye out for ones local to you as they spring up – there are many ongoing demonstrations against Trump’s EO on Immigrants and Refugees), but here are two upcoming ones to keep an eye on:
- March for Science
The march’s mission statement:
March for Science is an effort comprised of dozens of independent, nonpartisan coordinators. Recent rhetoric has inspired us to march on Washington D.C. and in Satellite Marches across the country. Our mission statement is as follows:
THE MARCH FOR SCIENCE CHAMPIONS PUBLICLY FUNDED AND PUBLICLY COMMUNICATED SCIENCE AS A PILLAR OF HUMAN FREEDOM AND PROSPERITY. WE UNITE AS A DIVERSE, NONPARTISAN GROUP TO CALL FOR SCIENCE THAT UPHOLDS THE COMMON GOOD, AND FOR POLITICAL LEADERS AND POLICYMAKERS TO ENACT EVIDENCE-BASED POLICIES IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST.
The date hasn’t yet been set, but follow their social media accounts to learn more. You can get all the current info and sign up to volunteer at or coordinate a satellite march in your community on their website.
- Tax Day (April 15th) Marches for Various Causes
Mark your calendar for April 15th – there are already protests and marches being planned all across the country for Tax Day. Various causes are being represented – I’ll be attending a Black Lives Matter march in Seattle (Westlake Park, 2pm – 6pm!), but I’ve also heard of marches pressuring Trump to release his tax returns and for other causes and grievances. Find out what’s happening near you and go participate.
