Researchers, teachers, doctors, children and lovers of science flooded the National Mall on Saturday, April 22, 2017 for the March for Science in Washington, D.C. The peaceful protest called on a mission to “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,” according to the official website. The day began with a teach-in and rally and ended with the march through the streets of D.C.
