March for Science 2017
Science, Not Silence
On April 22, 2017, over 50,000 Angelenos gathered in Pershing Square to celebrate the March for Science. It was an all-species event, with supporters of science both young, old and four-legged showing up to support the role of science in both our community and country at large. The crowd heard from speakers across different industries with one, clear refrain: we must value science, not silence. In the afternoon--despite 90 degree weather--thousands of participants enjoyed the science expo, where 25 exhibitors from academia, advocacy groups and educational programs had an opportunity to talk about their mission in our community.
