Those kids - the price of admission

I love those kids from March for our Lives. Even more than gun control, they represent inclusion. Rich, poor, black, brown, little people, male, female, gay, straight, whatever .... all are welcome. This is the 'Obama generation.' I have so much hope for the future. Thanks Obama.

1. They have just begun. Mark April 7th on your calendar.

March For Our Lives TOWN HALLS April 7th.
The students and communities who support stricter gun legislation are encouraging citizens to call and arrange town halls in your district on April 7th (before they head back to DC). They organized a site with help from Town Hall Project (Town Hall For Our Lives).
These young people are getting people registered to vote and are going through the legislative process for change and on April 7, they’re calling for every member of Congress to hold a town hall.

“If your local legislator refuses to come for whatever reason, simply invite their opponent,” Hogg told us. “It's as simple as that.”

Town Hall Project empowers constituents across the country to have face-to-face conversations with their elected representatives. We are campaign veterans and first time volunteers. We come from a diversity of backgrounds and live across the country. We share progressive values and believe strongly in civic engagement. We research every district and state for public events with members of Congress. Then we share our findings to promote participation in the democratic process.

This movement is diverse, open source, and powered by citizens. We are proud to be a part of it.
