Fire the Fool Declaration Rally - Washington D.C.

Fire the Fool Declaration Rally - Washington D.C.

Action Type

Where

National Mall and Memorial Parks, 900 Ohio Dr SW, Washington, DC, 20024

When

Saturday, April 1, 2017 -
12:00pm to 8:00pm

Description

On Saturday April 1st, 2017, thousands will unite at the National Mall in Washington D.C. to join in the Fire the Fool Declaration Rally.

This rally was founded to impart a satirical, symbolic, and powerful message of firing (impeaching) President Donald J. Trump, and to empower citizens all around the country to take power in their own political systems.

Fire the Fool will be held on April 1st (April Fools Day) on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Sister Rallies will be held around the country and the world in solidarity with the main rally in D.C.

“This is a bottom up epidemic of politicians whose spineless, common practice is to let our Constitution be trampled under their power-hungry, people-silencing, alternative-fact promoting mud-caked boots. 2018 is near. This is our collective reminder to stand up, fight back, and be bold.” – Words from our founders.

According to a new CNN/ORC poll on February 3rd 2017, 53% of the country disapproves of the way the President has kicked off his presidency thus far. Trump is the only President to hold a net-negative rating this early in his tenure.

Event organizers are currently working on permits, insurance, translators, financial and in-kind contributions, travel arrangements, and the necessary accommodations for those who have special needs. This is an event for all to ensure all voices are heard.

National March for Science

National March for Science

Action Type

Where

National Mall, Washington, DC, 20005

When

Saturday, April 22, 2017 (All day)

Description

SCIENCE, NOT SILENCE

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.

ON APRIL 22, 2017, WE WALK OUT OF THE LAB AND INTO THE STREETS.

We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone.

Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide and a teach-in at the National Mall, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels - from local schools to federal agencies - throughout the world.

Join us April 29th in Washington, DC to let Trump know that we won't let him destroy the environment on our watch.

There is no denying it: Donald Trump’s election is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families. If the policies he proposed on the campaign trail are implemented, they will destroy our climate, decimate our jobs and livelihoods, and undermine the civil rights and liberties won in many hard fought battles.

It’s up to us to stop that from happening before it starts.
