NJ March for Science - NJ Satellite March

  • Trenton War Memorial

We are looking for volunteers to campaign at the march--please RSVP to this event post or call 1-866-SKD-4-GOV.

Official Mission Statement of the New Jersey March for Science:

The New Jersey March for Science affirms the guiding statement of the National March for Science (

“The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly
communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good and for political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.”

We as scientists, students, teachers, doctors, engineers, and concerned citizens have chosen to March for Science to bring attention to important issues that we see as threatening the safety of our fellow citizens, our state, our national character, and the endeavor of scientific exploration. 

-Fact-Based Policies: We demand that our leaders take into account the best available scientific evidence when making their decisions, in particular in the areas of climate change, healthcare, energy policy, public safety, education, and resource management. We reject attempts to silence the voices bringing attention to scientific evidence of the serious problems faced by our society, and we reject politically-motivated attacks on scientific research in any field.

The Struggle for Peace in the Philippines Forum

  • Saint Peter's College, Roy Irving Theatre

Hosted by the New Jersey Philippine Solidarity Committee

The Philippines has made international news in the past few months because of a ruthless war on drugs that has spawned the deaths of more than 7,000 alleged drug pushers and users. In contrast, the revival of the peace negotiations between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GRP) and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) has gone largely unnoticed in international press. The successful completion of the formal peace talks could have profound implications for Philippine societythat would address the social, political, and economic roots of the so-called drug menace and the decades-old civil war. The GRP-NDFP peace negotiations are the only peace negotiations in the world that address far-reaching social and economic reforms at the national level.

Community Unity Rally & Tax March

  • Cedarbrook Park

Throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised that he would release his tax returns "later." Then, just a few days after Trump assumed office, his top adviser, Kellyanne Conway, said that he wouldn't release his tax returns ever, because the American people "don't care." We're here to say that we do care.

Join us at Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield on Saturday, April 15, 2017, to march and show Donald Trump that he owes us transparency. Two-thirds of Americans are concerned that he may be putting his interests ahead of the country's. Until we see his tax returns, we will not let let up.

Seth will be among the line-up of speakers including community advocates as well as performers.  Bring your family, lunch, a blanket and chairs.
