The March for Science on Earth Day is underway, bringing together tens of thousands of scientists, friends of science, and science supporters across 500 rallies across the country in a stand for truth and against alternative facts.
A livestream of the rally in Washington D.C., hosted by Earth Day Network goes live at 10am ET, and it will include speeches from Questlove, Bill Nye, astronauts, biologists, and leaders in public health, engineering, and more.

“Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations,” the March for Science website reads. “We speak up now because all of these values are currently at risk. When science is threatened, so is the society that scientists uphold and protect.”
