March for our Lives Peace Plan

On average, 21 kids and teens are shot everyday in the United States. Generation Lockdown has been taught from an early age to run, hide, fight. I’m hopeful because of the Peace Plan, our bold and comprehensive plan to end gun violence. And all the student activists from around the country who came together for our first annual summit and are organizing their communities. Not to mention the fact that after people around the country spoke out, Walmart stopped selling handguns and ammunition for military-style weapons, leading dozens of other companies to take action as well.

June 7 wear orange for gun control

June 7th — marks the fifth National Gun Violence Prevention Day, also recognized as #WearOrange Day. We’re joining the #WearOrange movement with fellow gun violence prevention organizations to honor all those we have lost and continue to push for the change this country needs to keep people like Hadiya safe.
The March For Our Lives was the largest protest against gun violence in history. But youth activists and other organizations began rallying against this epidemic long before we marched in Washington. By joining this movement and taking action together, we can continue to make a lasting impact on our society.

March for Our Lives Billboards in Times Square

For the next two weeks, eight billboard video screens in Times Square will remind people that we’re not just saying enough is enough.

We want change. We’re going to make sure people don’t stop talking about the gun violence epidemic in America. 

 

 

We’ve protested in front of Congress, targeted influencers across the country, developed QR-code t-shirts to register voters, filled Congressional hearing rooms with hundreds of students, and used texts to organize supporters and drive Get Out The Vote efforts (have you joined our We Call B.S. team yet? Text SAVE LIVES to 954-954). And just last month, we went to the U.S. Capitol to send a clear and powerful message to our nation’s leaders: Your Complacency Kills Us.
