MFSLA: Rally and Science Expo
The March for Science Los Angeles is back and due to last year's popularity we are focusing on the rally and Science Expo! Help us make sure the speakers and presenters have the tools they need to make it a fantastic event! We aim to bring people together around science, point to concrete policy options and give people tools to explore science and support evidence-based policies throughout the year.

The March for Science Los Angeles is a project of the Los Angeles Alliance for Science and represents the partnership of the scientific community and the wider public. We stand in support of evidence-based policies and to show support for proper scientific research and funding. We stand peacefully opposed to the selective silencing, censorship, and defunding of research and evidence. In increasingly illiberal times, the one thing we can count on to protect our health, our environment, and indeed our very perception of what is true and false, is science.
