Archivists, librarians, and curators will be joining the March for Science (April 22) and the People’s Climate March (April 29) both in Washington DC, and in sister cities across the United States! Use this map to find a point of contact for your city’s sister march, or email Eira Tansey to volunteer yourself as a point of contact for your area.
ProjectARCC is preparing for the 4/22 March for Science and the 4/29 People’s Climate March, and organizing to ensure LAM (Libraries, Archives, Museums) representation at both marches. We’re calling this Project mARCCh in recognition that as professionals charged with the preservation of cultural heritage, and an abiding commitment to information and knowledge access, we stand proudly in solidarity with our sisters and brothers who are at the forefront of information work around climate change, particularly scientists and journalists.
We’re keeping this pretty simple: if you are a librarian, archivist, or curator who would like to be a point of contact for an upcoming sister city march, we’d like to count you as a Project mARCCh point of contact. Contacts will be expected to serve as a local point of contact for organizing to increase the visibility and solidarity of LAM professionals at the 4/22 and 4/29 events. If you volunteer with Project mARCCh, you will be publicly identified on our website (on the map below) as the point of contact for your area. If you plan to remain local, we hope you will recruit other LAM professionals to attend sister city events. If you plan to come to DC, we will do our best to all congregate together.
The locations given are approximate, and for general reference only. Please contact the Project mARCCh point of contact for that city regarding any special meetup instructions they have in mind. Note: Washington DC, Boston, and Boulder have contacts for BOTH marches. Zoom in very close for contact information!
