Sibling March in Charlotte Is Among Hundreds of Local Marches Following the Shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Find More About Sibling Marches at www.MarchforOurLives.com/events
On Saturday, March 24, community members from Charlotte, North Carolina will gather for a “sibling march” as part of the March for Our Lives movement. The march is one of hundreds happening around the country planned by students and survivors of gun violence in communities big and small, in all 50 states. The national day of action will focus on calling for lawmakers to make students’ lives and safety a priority and to pass commonsense gun safety legislation. “We cannot sit around and watch innocent lives be taken when the answer is so simple” said Maddie Syfert, a senior at Myers Park High School and an organizer of the march. “Students across the CMS district will come together to fight for our lives and march on the 24th. We march to never again see students go to school and fear that they may get shot—to never again see another innocent child die from gun violence.”
WHAT: Community members from Charlotte will rally with other concerned residents for a sibling march as part of the March for Our Lives movement to call on lawmakers to make students’ lives and safety a priority by passing commonsense gun safety legislation.
