On April 22 - Earth Day - we will unite in Atlanta for the March for Science.
Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations.
We speak up now because all of these values are currently at risk. When science is threatened, so is the society that scientists uphold and protect.
There are a number of costs associated with marching, least of which is the liability insurance, which can be $0.50 for every marcher in attendance! The bigger we want to be the more it costs, and we'd love to have a huge outpouring of support for science!
Some of our most prominant costs are:
- Liability insurance for 20K marchers $ 10,000
- Emergency Medical Services $ 3,000
- Green Team cleanup crew $ 500
- Volunteer Shirts $ 2,000
- Water $ 125
- Bull Horn $ 114
- Name Tags $ 25
- Signs $ 500
- Permits $ 200
- Waterwater refill stations $5,000
- Restrooms $ 4,000
- Stage/sound $ 7,900
- Sanitation $ 3,875
- Security $ 5,000
- Speakers $ 2,000
- Meeting costs $ 500
- Interpreters $ 1,000
- Vendors table and chairs for $ 3,300
We would also gladly accept "in-kind" donations for things from the list, where possible!
