March For Our Lives South Florida - Everything You Need To Know!

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

On March 24, 2018, the students, families, and fellow supporters of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, D.C. and across the nation to demand that their lives and safety become a priority.

The first-ever March For Our Lives was created by student organizers in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, FL, on Feb. 14th. 

Following the horrific MSDHS school shooting, student survivors banned together to "...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," as explained on the March For Our Lives website. "In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns.  March For Our Lives believes the time is now. "

Students are calling on the public to stand with them on March 24: "It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now... Refuse to allow one more needless death."

"[We want] student to live in a world where they don't have to go to school worried that they will not make it home that night. Our students, teachers, and community members should not live in fear of weapons and threats on their lives, and the March for Our Lives hopes to act on that hope,” said Maya Lubarsky, youth leader of March For Our Lives Miami. “On March 24th... we will be marching in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Washington D.C. to show that our voices are going to be heard. We will be marching for policy change, awareness, and to demonstrate that this will never happen again! As an alum of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I hope that no other members will ever feel the pain I felt for my community. On March 24th I march for the lives lost in my high school, in my home, and I march for the future generations that should be given the right to learn and live without fear!"
