This is a sister march partnered with 100+ other marches across the United States and the world to celebrate science, information, and technology and the people that make it all possible. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us in showing support for scientific research, technological and medical advancements, and scientists, researchers, lab managers, volunteers, and the curious minds of the next generation.

To plan this march, we need and appreciate your support. Below is a breakdown of expected expenses to coordinate and plan the march.

Any funds donated in excess of those needed to plan and organize the March will be donated to a non-profit dedicated to science education and future scientists.

Thank you, thank you! The funds raised so far will be the jumping off point for acquiring permits and other necessities for the march. Today some organizers are attending a science advocate training so we can learn more about this whole process. Last night, I went and saw the new movie Hidden Figures, which portrays several highly intelligent Black women and the work they did with NASA in the 1960s on space travel, including many of the obstacles they had to overcome as women and Black in the middle of the Civil Rights Movement. It's a great history lesson on science and civil rights, check it out!
Moving forward we are reaching out to volunteers and getting things organized. Your help, your donations of time, effort, and funds is what are going to power this movement to the forefront of Ann Arbor's advocacy. So share this with your friends and family, speak out on Facebook, take action in your own circles to educate people about science. Thank you again, and keep up the good work!

Is anyone going to answer Danny's query? Seems like a legitimate question in light of the powers we're resisting.
