1 of Many Weekend of Action 2018

Save the Date for the March for Our Lives Weekend of Action in support of common sense gun control: March 23-25, 2018.

The Arlington County Democratic Committee (Arlington Democrats) is planning a Weekend of Action in support of the March for Our Lives on March 24 in Washington D.C.

Just over two weeks ago, a shooter opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida – killing 17 and wounding 15 students and staff. In response, their classmates and students around the nation have called for action against school violence. They have also called for all of us to join them in the March for Our Lives.

Arlington Democrats are responding to this call and are planning to march in solidarity with the Parkland students, all students and families who have been affected by gun violence, and our community – because we must each do our part to prevent gun violence.

We also want to send a strong message to our elected officials of our support for sensible gun control and comprehensive action to eliminate gun violence in our schools and community.
