Starting the march! Led by Directors Alejandra (Left) and Madison (Right)

Houston, at its core, is a city built on science. From NASA, the Texas Medical Center - the largest medical center in the world, the many world renowned educational institutions that encompass any science field you can imagine, to the oil and gas industry, our region predominantly relies upon science. The policies recently adopted will directly affect the scientific community of our city. On April 22nd we joined forces to fight for our scientists, our people and for the integrity of fact-based science.

March for Science – Houston took place on April 22nd, 2017 at Sam Houston Park and Houston City Hall.
