March locally by meeting us at UGA Arch Downtown Athens, Athens, GA .
Join the citizens of Banks, Hall, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, White and Habersham counties to rally with us at the downtown Clarkesville Gazebo, 555 Monroe Street, Clarkesville, Georgia.
Beginning at 10am on March 24, teachers, students and families will rally in downtown Clarkesville, GA to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.
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 the Northeast Georgia March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before the Georgia General Assembly and the U.S. 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.
Change is coming. Stand with us. Tell your friends and join us.
March for Our Lives: Dahlonega
Since Sandy Hook, 464 students and teachers have died from more than 230 school shootings, and there have been more than 1800 deaths in the US from mass shootings. Even one more is far too many. As students, teachers, and everyday Americans, we have had enough.
Congress says they cannot act. We call BS. We will not stand for this broken system. We will not stand idly by while classrooms become places of fear. We will not be quiet while the NRA and the Gun Lobby give bloody money to Congress while more victims die.
Join us to demand that our state and our nation take action NOW to enact meaningful gun control.Public Dahlonega Gold Museum Historic Site1 Public Sq, Dahlonega, Georgia 30533
Hosted by UNG College Democrats, Indivisible Lumpkin and Dahlonega Feminist Egalitarian Movement
