The American Geophysical Union (AGU) President Eric Davidson, and President-Elect Robin Bell endorsed the March for Science set to take place on April 22, 2017 and coincides with Earth Day. The endorsement by the executive committee was announced following consultation with the event organizers, and an in-depth review of principles and goals for the march and the activities planned and noted the march "strongly aligns with and reinforces" AGU's own mission. The March for Science is being organized in response to recent policy changes that have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue.
