On April 22, more than 1 million people in more than 600 locations across all seven continents joined together in the single largest event in support of science in history.
We are scientists, science enthusiasts and concerned people of planet Earth. We come from all cultures, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength; a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process and social progress. What unites us is a love of science, reason and an insatiable curiosity for knowledge. We recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone on the globe.
Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations.
