This petition had 6,128 supporters

Worldwide, students have been drastically effected by the damaging epidemic revolving around school safety and gun control. After the tragic school shooting at Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, students have become hungry for a need to take initiative in their communities. Which includes providing a safer environment for students attending public school, not only in their district, but in districts all over the country- all over the world even. With peaceful protests and marches increasing in numbers, high schoolers demonstrate their ability to take control and make use of their social and political rights, as well as exemplifying their relentless fight to make their learning environment a safer space. One of the closest and most important marches will be on March 24th in Washington DC, held by the organization “March For Our 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.” The goal of this march is to demand and have a bill be addressed in Congress about gun issues flooding our country’s school systems. The protest is peaceful, meaning that no violence and harm shall be present throughout the event. Please help Lakeland High School students attend this march to express their support in this gun safety movement and create a safer school environment for fellow students. “No student should ever have to go to school wondering if this is their last time entering the building, and no parent should ever have to think if this is the last message they receive from their child.”Join together, show you care, students should feel safe not scared.
