Statement on Peaceful Assembly and Nonviolence

The March for Science welcomes anyone who supports science and its role in serving the public. We expect a diverse group of participants, including first-time marchers and families with young children. We want to facilitate the physical and emotional safety of everyone involved.

We endorse collaborative problem-solving when conflict arises, and we seek understanding, reasoned disagreement, and good-faith discussions with people whose priorities differ from ours.

We value inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. We do not condone harassment within or without the March for Science community. This includes expressions of sexism, ableism, racism, xenophobia, intolerance regarding religious, agnostic and atheistic beliefs, and other forms of abuse in person, online, or in signage.

We do not condone violence at the March for Science as we march, demonstrate, rally, and host teach-ins in support of our goals.  We request that supporters at the D.C. march and satellite marches respect all relevant laws where they are participating as they exercise their right to assemble, speak out, and petition their leaders for change.

We are growing a global grassroots movement for science, and we are all in this together. We look forward to collaborating and seeing everyone out in their communities on April 22.
