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.
