March for Science Follow-Up Actions

Keep the momentum going! You can continue to be a strong voice for science and build dialogue with your neighbors, community members, legislators, and others about science and its value. Here are some ways to keep engaged:

View or download our Five-Week Action Plan.


Share videos, photos, and impressions from the March with AGU!
Tweet @theAGU or share on Instagram
Hashtags: #ScienceIsEssential     #MarchforScience      #ScienceServes
Submit photos and videos to AGU’s Tumblr (check the hashtag March for Science when you submit).



Tell AGU your story of science and its impact on society, so we can share it even more broadly.



Send a Science Is Essential postcard to your legislators, or host a postcard-writing party to encourage colleagues and friends to write and send them too. You can also request a printed Science is Essential postcard (bulk requests accepted, while supplies last).



Congress is starting to consider funding for fiscal year 2018 (October 2017 – September 2018), including setting priorities for science.  Urge your members of Congress to ensure America’s scientific enterprise remains strong by providing robust funding for our science agencies. Take a few minutes to voice your support for science!



Sign up to find a group of like-minded AGU members in your area with whom to take action and continue communicating science and its value. Or form your own group with colleagues and friends.



Talk with your community about science and its impact on your region. You can give a talk, invite a community group on a lab tour or field trip, or engage in many other ways. Want some guidelines?
