Pam, I know a couple of people who are planning to go who I can put you in touch with. I'm flirting with the idea of going to the one in NYC.

You are correct that MLA has not expressed formal support for the March. There is a small group of us that has formed as part of MLA's Relevant Issues Section to focus on this type of activism, as well as governmental affairs and other policy work. We have a monthly conference call and would love to recruit more interested librarians, whether or not you are an MLA member.  If you're interested in learning more, email me and I can add you to our email list.

Perhaps I've missed an announcement or a page on the MLA Web site, but I don't see anything expressing formal support for the March for Science.
ALA  issued a press release yesterday: 

I'd be interesting in meeting up with other MLA members who will be participating in DC on Saturday morning at the rally.

But yield who will to their separation,
My object in living is to unite
My avocation and my vocation
As my two eyes make one in sight.
Only where love and need are one,
And the work is play for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done
For Heaven and the future's sakes.
