Mark your calendars for the second March for Science Los Angeles event! This year instead of marching we are focusing on programming and our Science Expo. With the event we hope to bring people together around science, point to concrete policy options and give people tools to explore science and support evidence-based policies throughout the year. The Science Rally will run from 10 AM - 11 AM. We are proud to announce our confirmed speakers include Astrophysicist and Curator Dr. Laura Danly, Malik Ducard of YouTube, Dr. John Fleming of Center for Biological Diversity, Dr. Carlos G. GutiƩrrez Professor of Chemistry at Cal State LA, Dr. Mona Patel of Children's Hospital LA, and Neurobiologist Dr. Tepring Piquado.

Our Science Expo booths will be open from 9 AM - 4 PM and will be centered around celebrating science through science education, communication, policy, and outreach. From 11:30 AM - 4 PM, Nerdist's Science Editor Kyle Hill will MC the expo stage, which will feature live interactive demos, science-inspired music, and include a series of focused sessions.

Session topics include: What citizens need to know about science, How to get Involved in Policymaking, Environmental Justice: Can you make a difference?, and Inspiring the next STEM generation in LA.
