March to End Gun Violence
March 24, 2018
On March 24, 2018, students, families, and leaders around the country will join in the March for Our Lives to witness against the forces that are encouraging gun violence. Led by students from Marjorie Stone Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, this national movement is bringing together people from all over the political spectrum to pressure our nation’s leaders to find solutions to gun violence and school shootings.
While the main March for Our Lives event will occur in Washington, D.C., there will also be a local event at Dallas City Hall on Saturday, March 24, 2018, from 1 to 3 p.m. This event is being organized by local students — with the support of organizers who’ve worked on past marches — in solidarity with the national March on Washington.
If you’d like to volunteer, contribute resources, or wish to help in any way, the organizers welcome your support. If you’re a student at a local university or high school and are interested in representing/organizing your campus, please see the Facebook page, March For Our Lives — Dallas, where all updates and information will be shared.
The voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard across the country. And hopefully, elected officials and our culture will begin to shift toward preventing gun violence.
