March for Our Lives: Saturday Action to End Gun Violence

Saturday, June 11th,  11:00 AM -  2:00 PM PT, Portland State Urban Plaza, Portland, OR

In the week and a half since the tragic mass shooting at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, many educators throughout the nation and in our own state have searched for ways that they can take action to pressure America’s elected leaders to take real action to prevent another senseless tragedy involving gun violence from taking place.

Since its founding in 2018, following another mass school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, NEA has partnered with the organization March for Our Lives. This student-led organization and its hundreds of local chapters around the nation push for changes at the community, state and national level to end gun violence in schools and in America.

On Saturday, June 11th, March for Our Lives chapters across the country are organizing marches, including here in Portland. Sign up here for updates.
