10 of Our Favorite Protest Signs From the March for Science

April 24, 2017

“Grab them by the data.”

This past weekend, more than 600 locations around the world — from small-town America to Arctic research outposts and even under the sea — hosted demonstrations in support of the March for Science. Organizers have reported huge turnout numbers, including 40,000 marchers in DC, making this yet another show of resistance to dwarf Trump’s own rallies and events.

If there’s one thing the resistance knows how to do when we come together and pool our collective creativity, it’s make a kickass protest sign — and the March for Science did not disappoint. Here are some of our favorites from the day. Want even more sassy signs for science? Find the rest on our Flickr account!

Now keep this resistance going strong — join the People’s Climate March on April 29!

This Saturday, we’ll be marching for jobs, justice, and the climate with the People’s Climate Movement. To defend our environment and communities from Trump’s dangerous agenda, we need everyone to step up and get active — are you in? RSVP for a People’s Climate March near you today! (You can even reuse your sign from the March for Science, we won’t tell.)
