It's been nearly six months since thousands of people took over Washington for the March for Science. Conceived in the wake of President Trump's inauguration, and galvanized by his efforts to slash environmental protections and cut the federal budget, the march was meant to serve as a defense of science and a call to action for researchers who usually shy away from political activity.
On that April day, many demonstrators around the world said they were inspired to do more outreach in their communities, fight for equality at their schools or within their labs, get involved in politics or run for office themselves. “We intend to symbolically keep marching,” national co-chair Valerie Aquino told The Washington Post the day after the protest. “I would love for the March for Science to continue growing into a global movement.”
