On March 24, the students and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.
The UCC Washington Office, in partnership with the UCC Central Atlantic Conference and the Capital Area Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), will provide hospitality prior to the march. Please stop by the United Methodist Building anytime between 9:00-11:30am. We will provide breakfast fare and snacks to go, and will have a sign-making station, along with pre-printed signs you can carry. All are welcome!
The official march program begins at noon and will take place on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3rd and 12th street NW. It is an easy (downhill) walk from the United Methodist Building and a short ride to the accessibility drop-off point at the intersection of 7th Street and Maryland Street, SW. More information on the march program and route can be found on the March for Our Lives website.
