From the “March For Our Lives” Organizers –

“IN LOS ANGELES ON MARCH 24, JOIN TOGETHER TO MARCH FOR OUR LIVES.

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Los Angeles to demand that their lives and safety become a priority, and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.

March in Los Angeles or march in your own community. On March 24, the collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.

In Los Angeles, the march begins 9 a.m. Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 603 S Spring St, Los Angeles, 90014.

Mission Statement

Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the 17 lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns.  March For Our Lives believes the time is now.

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Los Angeles to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.

School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing.  The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues.  No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.

Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard.

Stand up on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death.

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!”

College Corner CSUN Northridge

College Corner Tours: We had a great turnout for our Cal State Northridge and Channel Islands College Tours on Saturday, March 3, 2018.  We had a total of 32 Youth and Parents in attendance. College Advisors David and Susana were able to guide our Youth through the Chicano Studies Building, School library, Anthropology Department and more!

“One of the most compelling and important reasons for taking the students and parents on this tour was so that they could see the college firsthand – the classrooms, dorms, and library that the students would be living in for the next four years in the event that they were to commit to these universities,” says Deisy Huerta, Youth Director at All Peoples Community Center. “Students and parents had an opportunity to see the buildings inside and out, including classrooms, dorms, dining halls, gyms, and libraries.

 

If you have a Teen, we encourage You and Your Teen to visit our College Corner at All Peoples Community Center at 822 E 20th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90011.  Please call our College Advisors David or Susana at (213) 747-6357 ext 147 for more information.
