The March for Science was not only the first time that scientists took to the streets to defend the most basic values — evidence and truth — but it was the first outing for what is fast becoming a new phenomenon: a global pro-science movement.
As an official partner of the March for Science, the Cornell Alliance for Science mobilized its global network to help turn the historic April 22 action into an international affair. The Alliance’s Global Leadership Fellows and science allies organized and joined events in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, South Africa, Bangladesh, Mexico, the Philippines, Hawaii, London, New Mexico, Washington, D.C and elsewhere.
The April 22 March for Science is gaining traction around the world, including Bangladesh.

Science allies are organizing marches in the Philippines, Bangladesh, Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Hawaii, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, London and other places.
