In the wake of endless school shootings, students have decided we’ve been numb to the frequent tragedies for too long. The students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High have called for a nationwide day of action to protest the unending gun violence. Student organizers across the Pioneer Valley have answered and come together to make our voices heard!

We’ll kick off at Northampton High School and march to City Hall to demand legislative action. The rally at city hall will feature student speakers and performers, amplifying youth voices.

There will also be a portion of this event for our youngest marchers. They will march into the lower level of the Unitarian Universalists Church where kids will be read stories by local children book authors and teachers. They also plan to incorporate music and dance into their activities.
