March For Our Lives Students Will Be At U.S. Capitol On 3/25 & 3/26
Dear Friends & Neighbors,

Just received this message from Jaclyn Corin, in italics, shared below:
One year ago on March 24th, 2018, we marched on Capitol Hill and called on Congress to finally pass sensible gun violence prevention policies. Last year’s March For Our Lives was the largest single day of protest against gun violence in our nation’s history.
Despite this massive show of support, many of our members of Congress still won’t acknowledge the gun violence Americans face every day. So we’re bringing the reality of the 40,000 lives we lost to gun deaths in 2018 to their front steps. Literally.
On Tuesday March 26th, we’re setting up a pop-up gun violence prevention art installation right on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol. We’ll be there from 8am – 5pm, reminding our members of Congress of the lives at stake each day they don’t take action. This is open to the public, and we encourage you to join us if you’re in the area!
The day before the installation, on March 25, March For Our Lives D.C. is hosting a Lobby Day. They’re coordinating with students and activists from across the country to descend on Capitol Hill and deliver a flood of #LettersForChange, demanding our senators pass gun violence reforms like S.42, the Background Checks Expansion Act, immediately.
Last year, millions of people around the world marched in solidarity with us. In response, Congress did nothing. Maybe they thought we would just go away after that. Too bad for them.
