Ahead of the “March for Science” on April 22 in Washington, D.C. and all over the world, Kate Lind and Nate Stevens of Pincause designed a new pin with illustrator Penelope Dullaghan. This one says “Science not silence,” with a rocket ship launching into space.
The Michigan couple has teamed up with march organizers to be the official pin of the demonstration. (Wear it on your hat.) They hope to raise $200,000 for the march and continue supporting the organization beyond the day of action.
As of Friday afternoon, they had sold 15,765 pins for $5 a piece. From every sale, $2 goes to the March for Science.

The upcoming march is volunteer-run and hopes to voice concerns about the Donald Trump administration’s policies and stance on issues like climate change and alternative energy. Decisions to cut funding, research and jobs in departments like the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy are of serious concern — as are changes to federal research websites.
These pins are just one way to fight back.
