The Westchester March for Our Lives takes place Saturday, March 24 at 1pm here in White Plains, beginning in the field at Post Road Elementary School.  It will continue from Post Road to MLK Boulevard and will end at the Dr. King Statue for a rally. The only people speaking at the rally will be the Mayor (to introduce dignitaries) and students. March For Our Lives is a student led project and the responsibility of adults in this project is to center and amplify the voices of our young people. 

The Westchester March For Our Lives is happening in solidarity with the national March For Our Lives the same day. The purpose of MFOL can be ascertained through their mission statement, part of which reads as follows: 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.
