The National UMC in Washington is inviting youth groups both locally and around the country to join them in a rally and lock-in leading into the March for Our Lives.
The rally begins Friday, March 23, at 6 p.m. and the lock-in starts at 9 p.m. Inspired by the teenagers in Parkland, Fla., they are hosting an event to raise awareness about gun violence, get excited for the March, meet other youth involved in the movement, and provide a place for groups to stay for free for one night in DC.
Guest speakers will talk about gun violence, mental health, and related issues. There will be pizza in abundance and a competition to make the best sign for the march.
For more information, contact Patrick Landau , director of Youth at National UMC, at 202-363-4900, Ext, 112.
The March for Our Lives will be held in many communities around the country Saturday, March 24, including a march in Washington D.C.
