Mission

The March for Science Hawaii celebrates the scientific process
mai ka lewa lani i luna a ka papak i lalo loa

We celebrate science as a foundation to explore life, understand the universe, foster global well-being, and advocate for it to be open, inclusive, and accessible.

Principles

1.We encourage people to recognize, appreciate, and engage with science and technology to ensure the long-term sustainability of our 'ina and the impact of science in our daily lives.

2.We seek to build and sustain a diverse and inclusive scientific community of all scientists, teachers, practitioners, and other stakeholders.

3.We believe that scientists must be allowed to communicate their results freely, without misrepresentation, distortion, or fear of retribution.

4.We support science education that teaches children and adults to think critically, ask questions, and evaluate truth based on the weight of evidence.

5.We advocate political decision-making that makes use of validated knowledge-systems, evidence, and scientific consensus.
