March For Our Lives
June 11, 2022 @ 12:00PM - June 11, 2022 @ 2:00PM
March For Our Lives is marching once again on June 11, 2022. After countless mass shootings and instances of gun violence in our communities, it’s time to take back to the streets and march for our lives. We marched in 2018 after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida, and now we’re headed back to DC.
Join us on June 11th in Washington, D.C., or in one of our hundreds of local marches on the same day, across the nation.
“Elected officials continue to stand by as OUR loved ones are taken away from us by gun violence. Gun violence took away not only my father but my grandmother as well. More than 50 years later, it hurts me to still see families experience that same pain. We need to take action.” said Martin Luther King III, Chairman of the Board for the Drum Major Institute.
“We can’t leave the burden of gun violence all on the next generation’s shoulders. Meaningful change has to start from the collective coming together and demanding our Congress take action and pass gun legislation. Enough is enough.” Arndrea Waters King, President of the Drum Major Institute.
“Children who look like me and children who look like your loved ones are all scared. We think about our hopes and dreams being snatched away by a bullet. To people in Washington this might sound cliche, but as kids, that’s what we’re taught. We can do anything we set our minds to, until we suddenly can’t anymore.” said Yolanda Renee King, Drum Major Institute Youth Advocate.
