Meet the citizens that make up the March For Science Indianapolis committees!
The March for Science Indianapolis took place on April 22, 2017. It was a non-partisan, non-violent and inclusive event. We welcomed all scientists, science advocates, and anyone who supported the free exchange of publicly funded research.
The movement around the March for Science was more than a singular event. The event served as a springboard for science advocates’ efforts to make science accessible to the public through volunteerism. Additionally, the event called upon policymakers to further understand research findings and enact science-based policies for the advancement of Hoosiers’ everyday lives.
