On May 4th, 2019, Mount Sinai will join the third annual March for Science in NYC, a gathering of people in solidarity to acknowledge and voice our shared belief: Given the critical role it plays in our lives, science deserves better from our government and our society.

Our main advocacy goals in organizing this march are as follows:
- The open access of scientific information to the general public.
- The use of science for the common good and in the preservation of an informed democracy.
- The protection of human and environmental rights.
