ESA Activities in Support of the March for Science
Art by ESA member Carly M. Tribull.
The Entomological Society of America (ESA) has endorsed the March for Science, to be held on April 22. The stated goals and non-partisan principles of the March for Science align closely with the strategic principles of ESA, in particular ESA's commitment to ensuring that all of its members can participate fully in the organization and its conviction that entomologists must collaborate with government and the public to maximize the positive benefits insect science offers to the world.
Information regarding the March for Science and ESA’s participation will added below as it becomes available:
Plan to join ESA at the DC March for Science. Logistical information on the DC March is available from the March for Science website. ESA will be hosting a member meet-up space at the ASAE Conference Center at 1575 I Street NW from 7:30 am to 5 pm the day of the March, and members will be gathering at that space to walk to the March together at 9 am. More information on the ESA meet-up location and the member rally is available.
You can also plan to support ESA member Jessica Ware as she speaks on the main stage at the March. Her short remarks are scheduled to take place between 10:40-11:10 am.
Note: ESA encourages participants at the DC March for Science to travel light; bags will be searched by security at the March for Science location, and you will be carrying any items you bring throughout the day. More information on security procedures and items not allowed at the March for Science is available at the March for Science website.
