Urge Trump to Attend “March For Our Lives” Against Gun Violence

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Attend the “March For Our Lives” in Washington, D.C. on March 24 and support students’ efforts to end gun violence.

Seventeen students and faculty members from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were killed on March 14th during a mass shooting. Students that survived are channeling their emotions into a political response by organizing a nationwide march to demand lawmakers prioritize ending gun violence. On March 24, the “March For Our Lives” will be centered in Washington, D.C. with sister marches expected to take place in major cities across the country. Five students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School discussed the “March For Our Lives” on several different television appearances.

Cameron Kasky, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, made an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” saying: “People are saying that it’s not the time to talk about gun control, and we can respect that. Here’s the time: March 24. In every single city, we are going to be marching together as students begging for our lives. This isn’t about the GOP. This isn’t about the Democrats. This is about the adults. We feel neglected. At this point, you’re either with us or you’re against us.” In an appearance on CNN, Kasky spoke about how political response could mean a positive change coming from an extreme negative: “At the end of the day, that is what is going to be bringing us to victory and making some sort of right out of this tragedy.”

In the wake of such a horrendous tragedy, the energy and spirit of these students calling for political change is inspirational. Sign this petition to urge President Trump to address the students at their “March For Our Lives.”

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

The Parkland, FL community is still recovering from the shock and horror of the mass shooting that occurred at the Majory Stoneman Douglas High School. In a very mature and productive response, surviving students are channeling their emotions into a political movement. On March 24 they are calling for students across the nation to call for an end of gun violence by participating in the “March For Our Lives.” This demonstration will be centered in Washington, D.C. but sister marches are expected to happen across the nation in major cities.

Cameron Kansky, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, commented on how political action to protect the nation against gun violence could put a positive spin on a very negative event: “At the end of the day, that is what is going to be bringing us to victory and making some sort of right out of this tragedy.” I urge you to attend the “March For Our Lives” and address the students and demonstrators that will be lobbying for stricter gun control laws.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
