Day of Science set for Saturday 

The original March for Science and its companion marches, including one in Rochester, rallied more than one million people to show their support for science and its role in government decision-making.

The national march, now in its second year, is set for April 14, and Rochester will again hold parallel events. Rochester March for Science organizers have put together a Day of Science with a noon rally in Martin Luther King Jr. Park followed by a march to the Rochester Riverside Hotel, where the organization will hold a science expo and career fair.

The rally and march are meant to serve as “a physical and symbolic show of the movement toward a future where science serves all,” says a press release from the organizing committee. The day's events will also emphasize the importance of science to Rochester’s economy and environment, and will highlight science-related careers in the region, says Nicole Raisanen, a member of Rochester March for Science’s board.

Rally speakers include Wendi Heinzelman, dean of the University of Rochester’s Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; City Council Vice President Adam McFadden; Brighton Supervisor Bill Moehle; State Assembly member Harry Bronson; Simeon Banister, Rochester Area Community Foundation’s vice president of community programs; and Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren.
