March for Our Lives Update

On March 24, beginning at Noon, Episcopal youth and adults from around the country will be joining the March for our Lives march to end gun violence. This is the first of what is likely to be several updates as we get closer to the event for those of you who wish to join the the march.

If you plan to march in DC on March 24 and have not already done so, please RSVP at the March for Our Lives website here. This will ensure you get the most accurate information directly from the organizers of the march and will also help the organizers plan for the right number of people.

Yesterday the location and time of the march in DC was announced to be 12:00 noonon Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3rd and 12th Streets, NWHowever, because the announcement did not indicate at which location the event will begin, a gathering place for the diocese is still TBA.

As soon as the diocese announces our meeting spot, we will let you know. Remember that parking could be a problem and to carpool if possible.

Also, Washington National Cathedral will host an interfaith vigil on the eve of the march, Friday, March 23, at 7:00 p.m. Learn more or RSVP here.

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns.  March For Our Lives believes the time is now.
