Yesterday, over 800,000 activists rallied in Washington D.C. and hundreds of thousands more gathered in cities nationwide, organized by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida – where 17 people were senselessly murdered last month to demand meaningful gun reform legislation. Their ultimate goal is to wrest the NRA’s blood-soaked, greed-centered stranglehold from the neck government.
With the full understanding that the fight has just begun, the young activists made sure to reiterate that the historic “March for Our Lives” was the kick-off rally for their political movement, and have laid out an agenda for the next few months leading up to the 2018 midterm elections.
As the rally ended, David Hogg detailed the movement’s next steps.
“…I think a lot of that hope is culminating in what we have coming up next.
Which is, the first thing is town halls in every Congressional district where we’re going to ask youth to create town halls and invite their congressman… and if their congressman refuses to come invite their opponent.
After that, we have another national school walk out on April 20 – the anniversary of Columbine – which students are going to be walking out and hopefully, organizing in their own communities to walk out and register to vote
…and then, after that, we’re going to have other marches in every single state… on state Capitols… where these people go to hold their state legislatures responsible, to make their voices heard.”

So, we have our marching orders. Please sign up at the March For Our Lives website and join the revolution for a sane America. The future of this country depends on it.
