March for Science Houston was created by its current President and Vice President, Alejandra and Madison, as a satellite of March for Science. March for Science was formed in order to advocate for the importance of science in our daily lives, in our communities, in policy making and for our future generations. On April 22, 2017, more than one million people from around the world marched to defend the role of science in policy and society. We marched because science is critical to our well-being. We marched for the common good.
Currently, March for Science Houston is in the process of becoming a nonprofit organization, to serve and improve our city through science advocacy and education. To foster a diverse and inclusive scientific community and to bridge the gap between scientists and the community, connecting them to encourage open dialogue, respect and trust between the two.
