March for Our Lives - Newark, NJ
Military Park
93 Park Pl.
Newark, NJ 07102

15 mi away
When: Saturday, March 24, 10:00 AM

March for Our Lives New Jersey will take place on Saturday, March 24th, at
MILITARY PARK in Newark, NJ, at 10 a.m., in conjunction with the national
March for Our Lives event in Washington D.C. and with sister events across
the state and country. March for Our Lives NJ is a student-centered,
student-lead event. It is being planned by a committee students from
diverse backgrounds who are coming together from schools across northern,
central, and southern New Jersey. They are being supported by Moms Demand
Action for Gun Sense in America New Jersey and its local chapters, Women
for Progress. OUR MISSION Written by student leader, Sarah Emily – High
School Senior “Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at
school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front
of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow
one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools
are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top
priority to save these lives.” -March for Our Lives, the National
Organization March for Our Lives New Jersey is the sister march of a
national movement led and inspired by young activists from Parkland,
Florida, who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
School on February 14th. Young people are dying at an alarming rate from
misuse and abuse of firearms. Seven of the 96 people killed in the United
States by gun violence are children and teens, according to the Brady
Campaign. In 2016, the CDC reported that gun violence killed more 15 to 19
year olds than cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined. Guns are also
disproportionately used against young people of color, those of lower
income brackets, and survivors of domestic violence. But these tragedies
are largely preventable. Studies show that with universal background checks
and other common sense gun laws we can reduce the carnage. We can stop the
senseless violence. So whatʼs stopping us? Lawmakers are putting a price on
childrenʼs lives and ignoring evidence in favor of campaign contributions
from the gun lobby. NOW WE SAY: NEVER AGAIN. School hallways should not be
war zones, and students should not be going home in body bags. Together, as
young people, we unite to demand justice, action, and government
accountability. As the national March for Our Lives organization, says,
“Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who
are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard. Stand with
us on March 24 — refuse to allow one more needless death.”



March for Our Lives New Jersey is coming up fast!

The march will be held *THIS SATURDAY March 24th at 10 a.m*. in Newark’s
Military Park, located at 51 Park Place
<>. It’s a

Please RSVP to to indicate your interest. Rev. Rob
will be gathering at 9:15 at the Starbucks at the corner of Broad St. &
Prudential Drive across from the start of the march at Military Park and it
would be good to coordinate with others who wish to come. Parking will be
