60+ Organizations Join March for Science, Network of Satellite Marches Nears 400 Globally

WASHINGTON (Tuesday, March 14) - The March for Science is pleased to announce 63 additional partnering organizations today. Less than two months after the march was first announced, the number of partners now approaches 100 organizations, which includes global institutions, and ranges from scientific societies to unions.

New major partners include the Alliance for Science, American Federation of Teachers, American Public Health Association, American Physical Society, California Academy of Sciences, Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, The Field Museum, Genetics Society of America, Phi Beta Kappa, Society for Neuroscience, and United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implement Workers. Please see below for a full list of new partners and here for the complete list of all partners.

"This incredible show of support and interest in becoming partners reflects how important it is to recognize the critical role that science plays in all parts of society, and among different communities providing diverse services around the world," said Teon Brooks, Co-Director of Partnerships. "We look forward to collaborating with all of our partners and expanding our global network in the coming weeks ahead."

As a not-for-profit, volunteer-led effort, the March for Science relies on its network of enthusiastic and dedicated supporters to make the March happen. In celebration of Pi Day (3/14), March for Science supporters are encouraged to contribute $31.42 through the MFS donation page. Donor support is vital to the mission of the March for Science, and each contribution strengthens the movement's capacity to effectively advocate for the role of science in public life, and brings us closer to the funding total needed to execute the March in DC on April 22, 2017.

In addition to the growing number of partnering organizations, new marches are registered in cities around the world each day. Close to 400 marches and rallies in 37 countries are scheduled to take place on April 22. The March for Science represents an unprecedented gathering of people standing together to champion science that serves the common good, and the indispensable role it plays in our lives and communities.

Starting March 20th, the March for Science will release a series of videos centered around the common theme of "Science Serves". Jayde Lovell, Director of Film and Video for March for Science, spearheaded the development of this multimedia campaign. "Many people think of science as just lab coats and lectures. But science is deeply tied to our quality of life. Scientists test our air and water quality, monitor our children's health and make sure we have food on the table. When politicians push for deep budget cuts and try to censor researchers, they aren't just hurting the scientific community, they're hurting the communities and people science serves. These #ScienceServes videos will underscore what science does for our society and risks we face if scientists aren't allowed to serve the public interest."

Inquiries about volunteering, starting satellite marches and other topics can be directed to email addresses found on the organization's site.
