There are a number of roles we have to offer and you get to decide how you would like to participate. The plans are secret though so just show up and get the details! See what a real-life MAM protest looks like and bear witness to the injustice so you can share that experience with others. Show the world that you rose up to DEFEND SCIENCE!

DESCRIPTION:
We are March Against Myths and we defend science through activism. This is a counter-protest against those who threaten public safety and security through their denial of the scientific consensus. We side with the scientific consensus in recognizing:

  • Vaccination is vital for disease prevention.
  • Genetic engineering is a safe & important technology.
  • Modern medicine improves the quality of life.
  • Human-caused global warming is real and needs to be mitigated.

This is your call to rise up with us in to continue the fight against the attack on science! ✊ Be a part of history, don’t miss it!
