Atlanta organizers have opted this year to hold a rally instead of a march, similar to how the one-year anniversary of the Atlanta March for Social Justice & Women was marked with a rally. That event was held at The Bakery — a new warehouse events space fast becoming known as a popular activist gathering spot — as will be the Rally for Science.
The decision to forgo a march was made because “speakers at a rally can provide information and tools for attendees to take away and use to continue their activism beyond the day’s event,” according the event page. Part of the group’s goal is to advocate for the responsible use of science in public policy, especially as it relates “to gun violence and climate change.”
The event will include speakers, an expo and food vendors. Volunteers can sign up here.
The rally will be held April 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. The Bakery is located at 825 Warner St. SW.
