Kitsap Joins Nationwide Protests
Join us Saturday, March 24, from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. in Silverdale where students, educators, and other concerned citizens will gather at the intersection of Silverdale Way and Kitsap Mall Blvd. to promote safe schools free of gun violence.
In the wake of the February 14 Florida shooting, a group of former Kitsap County educators and community activists founded “4 the Kids – Kitsap,” whose goal is to support and connect local high school students and the community in actions and policies that promote safe schools and leadership for change. The Silverdale rally is one of over 500 marches planned nationally on March 24 to both commemorate the Valentine’s Day tragedy and demonstrate that Kitsap County cares.
On March 14, tens of thousands of students from over 3,100 locations nationwide, including students from across Kitsap county, held vigils, walkouts and voter registration drives to honor the victims of the Parkland shooting. and demonstrate for change. This march will support and continue the efforts of young people locally and across the nation to promote safe schools.
Make and bring your own sign to show your support for schools free of gun violence.
