Are you marching? 

No. We anticipate tens of thousands of people will attend the March for Science Boston. After discussing this with the city and the Women's March planners, it became clear that marching that many people through downtown Boston was both impractical and unsafe. Instead, our event will be stationary on the Boston Common with multiple areas and activities.

However, if you would like to march to our event there are numerous community marches being organized. Please see our community march page here.

What about children?

Please see our kids' march page for information about our many children's entertainment and speakers.
