This Saturday, Washington, DC will once again play host as hundreds of thousands of people come to our home city to use their voices in the March for Our Lives. Many DC residents are planning to attend the March and add their voices to the students who have seized the movement pushing for ways to end gun violence. Before we head to the national March, join hundreds of your DC neighbors at the Rally for DC Lives and hear from DC youth on the ways gun violence has affected their lives.
We'll meet at Folger Park (3rd and D St., SE) at 9 am and hear from students directly about their experiences with gun violence, as well as ways DC is leading the nation with innovative laws like the NEAR Act to help reduce gun violence. Finally, we'll focus on the many ways DC gun laws have been violated and threatened by Congress and walk together to the national rally.
Board of Elections staff will be on-hand to register voters and pre-register youth ages 16 and 17. Join Mayor Muriel Bowser, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Council leaders, and advocates.
