March For Our Lives in Kilmarnock
On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC.
Show your support for their efforts and safety by marching in our own community.
Plan to meet on Saturday, March 24 in the parking lot of Chesapeake Commons prior to the 10AM march (that’s the Peebles parking lot).
Bring your chants and signs and be ready to march on the side walks of Main Street to the parking lot of Grace Episcopal Church.
Pre-Event Sign Making Party
Plan to gather for a sign making party (around 5:15 PM) at the warehouse of 35 South Main Street ( in back of Pearl Boutique) on Sunday, March 18 after the LDC Forum. Sign making materials will be provided.
Let’s do our part in demanding that their lives and safety of our children, our families, our citizens, become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.
All are welcome. Let our collective voices, the voices of the March For Our Lives movement be heard.
