Join thousands of your fellow San Diegans this Saturday, April 14th for The March for Science – at Waterfront Park next to the County Administration Building along Pacific Highway.

Here are details – taken from the March for Science website:

Why We March

The March for Science champions publicly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.
