THIS IS THE OFFICIAL MARCH PAGE. We know many people have RSVP'd to the other page, we are asking you to do so here so that March For Our Lives is the event host.
We have finalized the route with the NYPD! The ENTRANCE to the march will be at W 72nd Street entering onto Central Park West. We will be marching south. The NYPD will move the entrance up north as needed depending on crowd size (So if you get there later, you make have to go up to 79th). The exact details of the planned route will be discussed at our press conference on the steps of City Hall on Thursday, March 15. This announcement will be led by students.
We are in the process of inviting speakers who have been impacted by gun violence, including a Parkland student. This is not about politics or photo-ops, this is about STUDENTS and all victims of gun violence. We are planning on keeping a tight schedule, and our speakers will go on at 11 AM — so we ask you to begin arriving at 10 AM. We are working with a vendor to have several blocks of sound equipment and screens where possible.
School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.
