About this Event
I lost my childhood best friend to gun violence and am honored to stand in unison with the courageous students of the March for our Lives movement. Together we will stand up for the fallen children of senseless gun violence. On March 24, we will come together at the Durham Bull for a peaceful gathering in solidarity with the kids and families of March For Our Lives who will be taking to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety be made a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in American schools.
Stand with us in Durham or head to the march in Raleigh so collective and global voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.
