The March for Science in Milwaukee will bring together concerned citizens and environmental advocates on Earth Day to stand in support of science education and informed public policy.

Elizabeth Ferris, head of social media for the march’s planning group, says they expect more than 1,000 people to show up on Saturday. While the event will draw attention to issues of science literacy this weekend, she says organizers plan to keep the ball rolling by forming a new group: Milwaukee Area Science Advocates.

“Right now, we’re in the brainstorming stages,” Ferris said about MASA. “We’re seeing who is volunteering that will want to move on with the group.”

MASA will host a kick-off event in June, the first in a series of educational events Ferris says they’re considering at the moment. While the group aims to influence public policy, she says it will keep its focus on education.
