WHO WE ARE

STUDENTS WHO ARE READY FOR A CHANGE

March For Our Lives - Spokane is organized by students from sixteen Spokane-area high schools who formed an online community in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting. 

School shootings have hit Spokane as well.  In September of 2017, a student opened fired at Freeman High School in Spokane's eastern suburbs, killing a 16-year-old boy and injuring three girls, before being taken down.

Two students from the online group stepped forward to call a meeting on March 3, inviting everyone to meet for the first time.  Caroline Avery and Ellary Lockwood, students at Lewis and Clark High School, are both 17 and have some experience in progressive activism.

Over a dozen other students came to the meeting, representing half of the schools in the online group.  Together, we are out to transform gun legislation in this country.

WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE

OUR DEMANDS

We march to send a message to our Washington State Republican representative, Cathy McMorris-Rogers, fourth in the hierarchy of the Republican Congressional delegation after Paul Ryan. 

We demand that Congresswoman McMorris-Rogers:

  1. Vote in favor of a bill to ban assault weapons like the AR-15 used in the Parkland shooting
  2. Vote in favor of a bill requiring background checks for weapons sales
  3. Stop accepting NRA donations

To raise the pressure on Congresswoman McMorris-Rogers, we are asking students of every age, and everyone who cares about them, to join us in marching.
