Marches supporting science research to be held in New Haven, D.C.
Members of the Yale community have organized March for Science New Haven on Sunday, April 15 from 1-5 p.m. at 470 James St.
The organizers describe the event as a nonpartisan celebration to champion science that serves the common good, and to acknowledge the indispensable role that it plays in our lives and communities. It will feature selections from the Yale Science Diplomats’ “Science in the News” series of talks, TED talks on the science behind Connecticut’s greatest challenges, an “Ask Me Anything” talk section, and organizations working to elevate the use of evidence in policymaking. The event is free and open to the public.
The New Haven march is one of more than 500 events around the globe taking place this weekend in conjunction with the Science Marches On gathering in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 14.
As an educational and research institution, Yale supports the principles of free inquiry and exchange of ideas in the pursuit of truth in all fields from the arts and humanities to science, engineering, medicine and the social sciences. Research in these many fields leads to numerous practical applications and forms the basis for evidenced-based policy decisions that affect all of humanity.
