The March for Science is nearly upon us! As partners of the march in DC, as well as several satellite marches, we wanted to pass along info about events and logistics. There are over 500 Marches worldwide, so even if you aren’t near any of the marches mentioned below, you can find info on all of them at the . If you are interested in participating in a March but are not sure where the closest march is, visit the March for Science March information page, where you can find the March nearest you, and sign up.


Information about marching in general

We have just published a post, “How international scientists can advocate, and how U.S. scientists can support them” with information on marching and advocacy, with further resources, to provide information to try to address concerns and questions people may have about marching. Please contact info [at] with questions/comments.



March partners and events

Future of Research is officially partnered with the march in Washington DC, and with the satellite marches in Minnesota, Chicago, and Louisville. We will be participating directly in events at the DC March (a Teach-in) and the San Francisco March (on a panel) as detailed below!


March for Science DC

Event Details:



Future of Research Teach-in: Juan Pablo Ruiz of Labmosphere, also a lead organizer of a FoR meeting currently being planned in Maryland on mentoring in academia, will be leading a Teach-in, “Challenges in becoming a scientist”, discussing real actions to be taken in advocating for junior scientists. Register here! See also the Facebook event here.



The Washington, D.C. March will take place in downtown Washington on the grounds of the Washington Monument, between 15th and 17th Streets, NW. The grounds open at 8 AM, Teach-ins start at 9 AM, and at 2 PM the March to the Capitol begins.


Note: see the FAQs at – because the March will be taking place near the White House and the Capitol, all attendees will be required to go through airport-style security. From the March for Science website: “The following items are prohibited from being brought into the Rally: aerosols, alcoholic beverages, ammunition, balloons, explosives, firearms, knives, blades or other sharp objects (of any length), packages, structures, supports for signs & placards, weapons of any kind, and any other items that may pose a threat to the security of the event as determined by and at the discretion of the security screener.
