The March for Our Lives movement has been a long time coming, and is the product of a nation that values objects more than human lives. The voices for the March for Our Lives are those of the generation that grew up with mass shootings.This is the sound of millions of voices across the country pleading for change- we say enough. End the violence. There has been more than enough blood, tears, and bullets- one school shooting is a school shooting too many. However, we cannot ignore the gun violence that people in the low income communities of Chicago witness in the streets, in their homes and in their classes every day. Most if not all of these tragedies are preventable. March for Our Lives Chicago holds the culprits of this plague of preventable gun violence accountable. We hold the NRA, the politicians that support them, and the arms manufacturers and dealers accountable. We also hold Illinois’ neighboring states accountable for having lax gun laws that lead to guns being brought into Illinois. Throughout this movement the voices of black and brown people have been widely ignored. With Chicago’s status as the seventh most racially diverse city in the nation, it is imperative we put a focus on intersectionality and raise these voices up. March for Our Lives Chicago includes the experiences of people of color, women, and LGBT individuals in our fight to make the streets safe for children again. In 2017, 3456 Chicago citizens were victims to gun violence. We cannot have one more.

The survivors of the Florida school shooting are organizing a march in DC for Saturday, March 24th. Friends Who March & The Brady Campaign are organizing a sister march in Downers Grove. We will gather at the Downers Grove North High School Main Street Parking Lot at 11am. The March will begin promptly at noon. We will march down Main Street to the Main Street Train Station. WE WILL NOT CROSS THE TRACKS. We ask for you to then either walk on the sidewalks back to your vehicle or arrange a pickup at the end location. We want student groups to take the baton as this is their march. They will lead the march & can organize marchers. This does not mean that adults can’t march as well. It is open to all. We are going to have an organizing meeting next week in Downers Grove for people who want to get involved. We will update this event when that is confirmed. We also need to deliver flyers to all the residents on the parade route to inform them of the street closures for that day. We will pass out those flyers at the organizing meeting. We would love to have a sign making party too before the event & would love for students to organize this. If you want to take charge of this please let us know. If your group would like to co-host or you would like to be involved please message the page or email #Enough #MarchForOurLivesDG

National Day of Action Against Gun Violence in Schools

April 20, 2018 - TBD

Nationwide Action

Supporting Organizations: The Network for Public Education

After the slaughter of students and staff in Parkland, Florida, the time for action has never been more urgent. The politicians sit on their hands as our children and their teachers are murdered in their schools. We will be silent no more! The failure to enact rational laws that bar access to guns designed for mass shootings is inexcusable. It is past time to speak out and act.

Pledge your support to stop gun violence here.

We call for mass action on April 20, the anniversary of the horrific shootings at Columbine High School. We urge teachers, families, students, administrators and every member of the community to engage in acts of protest in and around their schools. Create actions that work best in your community.  Organize sit-ins, teach-ins, walkouts, marches–whatever you decide will show your school and community’s determination to keep our students safe. One elementary teacher suggested that teachers and parents link arms around the school to show their determination to protect children.

It is time to let our legislators know that they must stand up to the gun lobby and enact meaningful reform to protect students and staff.

Advocacy groups including the AFT, NEA and the BATS have already pledged their support.

The gun show continues at the Fairgrounds. They claim they won’t raffle off or sell ARs at this one like the March event but are undecided on future events. We will once again go to express our Constitutional right to peaceful protest & will not engage w the pro gun people. They will try to get in your face & intimidate you so be warned. Bring whatever sign you like. If you are a lawyer please attend as we clearly need someone who can protect our rights as the Wheaton PD did not care about us at the last protest. If anyone has any questions or your group would like to co-host please email
