Tomorrow-March For Our Lives – ATLANTA

Sat, March 24 at 11 AM

Center for Civil and Human Rights
100 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30313

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 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.

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Atlanta, GA to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.

School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.

Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear. It doesn’t have to be this way. 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!

ATL Demands End US Wars

Saturday, April 14

12 PM – 2 PM
Little Five Points
Atlanta, Georgia 30307

The Trump administration’s ominous nuclear threats on North Korea, escalation of criminal wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, a coupe threat in Venezuela, new threats on Palestine and huge increases in military spending endanger us all.

We face the dangerous growth of white supremacist forces, escalating raids and round ups of migrant workers, increasing attacks on the rights of workers and communities of color and the slashing of social programs.

The time is now to build unity and return to the streets to make out voices heard.

We are United
Opposed all US wars, nuclear threats, sanctions, coups and foreign bases
Fund Human Needs. Not endless wars.
Solidarity with oppressed peoples under attack at home and abroad
