“Please join students, Mayor Bowser, Congresswoman Norton, and other DC elected officials and activists, for a pre-march rally tomorrow (Saturday): Rally for DC Lives.”

From a press release:

“Before the March for Our Lives takes place tomorrow at noon, the Rally for DC Lives will give a platform to seven DC students ages 12 to 18 to share their experiences around gun violence and what needs to happen next.

They will be joined by Mayor Muriel Bowser, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, members of the DC Council, and Attorney General Karl Racine in calling for an end to gun violence and an end to congressional interference in DC’s locally passed gun laws.

Rally for DC Lives

Where: Folger Park (3rd and D St., SE) 

When: 9-10 am, Saturday March 24

Who: Mayor Muriel Bowser, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Council Chair Phil Mendelson, Councilmember Charles Allen, and student speakers from Wards 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8
