The March for Science – Raleigh is dedicated to promoting science that upholds the common good.
As organizers of the satellite March for Science in Raleigh, North Carolina, we follow the spirit of the Mission, Principles and Goals, and Diversity Principles put forth by the organizers of the National March for Science in Washington, DC.
Like the National March organizers, we envision a long term plan of action that will extend beyond April 22nd, the day of the march. To build a movement for science that will catalyze actions for lasting impact, we believe the mission and principles must be locally-rooted and embraced by the people of North Carolina. Therefore, we have begun the process of making connections between the national principles and our home state by:
Reaching out to organizations already working to address issues that align with our Mission and Principles
Drawing attention to important science-related issues that need to be addressed in North Carolina
Engaging with local community members to organize around multiple interfaces between science and society
