Approximately 30 demonstrators braved the rather nasty weather conditions Saturday and participated in a rally and March For Science in Ypsilanti. Marchers gathered in front of the Mark Jefferson Science building on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. Several speakers, including Ypsilanti Mayor Amanda Edmonds, and Midwest Regional Chair for NOBCCHE and Minority Affairs Michele Williams Harry, addressed the chilly march participants before marching to Ypsilanti's Riverside Park.
After the rally, hearty demonstrators marched briskly to Riverside Park holding signs which said, Truth in Science, No Science No Life, and Science Without Censorship Leadership Without Cronyism.
After arriving to the park, demonstrators gathered in the gazebo as mayoral candidate and Ypsianti city council member Beth Bashert, Research Technician Toya Ewing, Dave Strenski of Solar Ypsi, and others addressed protesters.
Saturday's March For Science was, as advertised, family friendly, peaceful and highly informative.
Stayed tuned... Word is there will be another March For Science in September!
