On March 24, 2018 the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Atlanta, GA to demand that their lives and safety become a priority.
We can debate gun control. We can debate mental health. We can debate the causes and potential solutions to issues facing our communities. What cannot be debated is the power of civic engagement. In just a few days, ordinary teens from across the country have organized, rallied and marched. They've faced-off against adults - from local officials to POTUS, demanding their voice be heard.
This is not the generation we thought. The one glued to Snapchat, texting their friends 24/7, without a care in the world. This is a generation for change, and they are in every town, in every school. It's inspiring to see 16 and 17 year olds with such conviction and poise. It's a reminder that engagement (especially with development of young people) matters.
March For Our Lives was created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings, that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, March For Our Lives believes the time to talk about guns is now.
Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard and you can help.
