“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!

"I know a lot of people are here because they're upset with the Trump administration for decreasing funding to research studies; however, I'm here because I feel as an African American, we've had issues with underrepresentation, as being a researcher, and being enrolled in research studies… We need to work to make sure everybody's represented. I want to emphasize that." – Janel Johnson, a scientist studying ALS and neurodegenerative diseases. #marchforscience #ScienceMarchDC #als #sciencemarch #democracynow
