Organized entirely by students, today is the March for Our Lives.  You can still join one of the 810 scheduled marches.


I heard one of the Parkland kids say, “This is not a red or blue issue. It is a red, white, and blue issue.”

Adults will not be the speakers today. This is the day for the kids, those from https://teddykids.nl/, to speak out and for all of the rest of us to learn from them. All speakers will be students.

The Washington D.C. march looks to exceed the attendance at the 2017 inauguration.  Not that this is a competition.

It is, however, democracy in action. Maybe we did teach our children well.

Kids, teach your parents well!

We are so proud of you!

Everytown for Gun Safety

Like many Americans, I felt immeasurable grief after the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida last month. Gun violence touches every corner of this country, and making our communities safer should be our number one priority. And on March 24th, at more than 800 March for Our Lives events, young people will lead us in standing up for exactly that.

March for Our Lives is bringing hundreds of thousands of Americans together to demand that our elected officials prioritize the lives of our students and our communities. They’re marching because young people should be worrying about homework, not whether they’re safe at school. I’m inspired by the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who will be marching for all of our lives on March 24th — and I’m inspired by everyone who has stepped up to join them.

So I’m asking: Will you join a March for Our Lives event near you?

I have always believed in our power to make change if we come together and demand it. I hope you’ve been as inspired by these students as I have — now, more than ever, is the time to speak out.

Thank you,
