That’s right, we are an official partner of March For Science, Silicon Valley! We’ll be setting up our table starting around 9:45am and will need to tear-down between 3pm and 3:30pm. We need volunteers to help as you can. Please specify in the comments at what times you are available to represent ACSJ.
We will also need back up volunteers, so please leave a comment if you can swing by and help scheduled volunteers take a break. Or just swing by!
All March For Science tables will be on the southwest lawn. Do allow yourself plenty of time to arrive as the event will be crowded and there will be road closures to accommodate the march.
March For Science, Silicon Valley, celebrates the crucial roles science plays in driving our economic growth, preserving our environment, and protecting the health of our citizens.
We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for policymakers to champion and fund science that upholds the common good and to advocate for evidence-based policies in the public interest at the local, state, and national levels.
The March for Science Silicon Valley will start at 11 a.m. at San Jose City Hall and culminate in a rally at <a href=”http://svcomiccon.com/”>Silicon Valley Comic Con’s free outdoor festival at Plaza de Cesar Chavez starting at noon. The family-friendly festival and rally will include science-focused educational activities and opportunities for nonpartisan advocacy for evidence-based policy. Experts in climate change, coding, astrophysics, STEAM education, local politicians, celebrities and more will speak. Participants in Silicon Valley Comic Con may also make surprise appearances.
• Do wear your ACSJ apparel at the March For Science and Silicon Valley’s Comic Con festival with pride! (You can purchase a $10 shirt at our Wednesday Night events at Harry’s Hofbrau.)
• Even if you can’t volunteer, please do visit our table to support the ACSJ and thank our volunteers.
