After we push to the polls, the March For Our Lives Arizona Summit brings young leaders from every corner of our state to discuss and create a localized solution to gun violence, and learn the skills needed to make it a reality. With skills learned and connections created, students from all over Arizona will be empowered to go back to their communities, and their schools as motivated individuals pushing for change.
All candidates for Governor are invited for an open discussion with the public on gun violence prevention. The forum will cover gun reform, social services in the classroom, police accountability, and other forms of violence and prevention forthcoming of the election.
Come celebrate the efforts of hundreds of young activists across the State of Arizona and learn what they have planned next. Breakfast For Our Lives will include a continental buffet and program.
The program includes an overview of our accomplishments, impact, and stories of those we are fighting for: the 33,000 people who die every year from gun violence. A survivor TBD will share their story.
Keynote speaker Terry Goddard will speak about the extent Dark Money corrupts our government, especially from organizations like the NRA and Citizens Defense League. Terry is the former Arizona Attorney General who has championed the fight against dark money interference in our democracy.
All proceeds go to further youth activism and the fight for common sense gun reforms
The Desert Southwest Conference and its community partners are holding a silent march to commemorate National Gun Violence Awareness Day on Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 8:00 AM at the Arizona State Capitol. The silent march will display shoes collected from gun violence victims and their families to graphically demonstrate the toll that gun violence takes in our communities. Clergy from various faiths and survivors will speak and bells will be rung to commemorate those killed and wounded by gun violence.
The DSC Gun Violence Task Force has received a stipend to help provide banners for churches who wish to hold a local silent march. For more information, please contact Billie Fidlin at firstname.lastname@example.org, and don’t forget to share pictures of your silent march via email or on Facebook.
