A cold, cloudy day was no match for the hundreds of science advocates rallying at the March for Science at Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Park Saturday morning.
The Rochester march was part of a worldwide call to action to unite as a diverse, non-partisan group calling for science that upholds the common good.
Rob Rolleston attended the rally wearing a lab coat, he is a data scientist and said facts need to be separate from politics.
"Science matters, truth matters, facts matter. And we're seeing an assault on the ability to actually have reasonable discussions."
