From Oakwood Arts, Richmond Teachers for Justice, and Studio Two Three

Students and parents have asked for workshops to prepare for the March 14 #Enough school walkout and the March 24 #MarchForOurLives.

We are hosting letter writing, open discussions, photo booth, and art activities for kiddos! S23 To-Go, Studio Two Three’s mobile print truck will be parked out front for sign making and t-shirt printing stations to prepare for these events. THIS IS A FREE WORKSHOP!

BYO T-shirts to print on!

ADDITIONAL WORKSHOPS:
March 21, 6-9pm at Studio Two Three

A portion of funds raised will go towards Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund: Virginia Chapter.

Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.

How about protesting those with criminal records having a gun that they use to shoot others in public housing?

@1 and 2 Just because one movement is getting a voice doesn’t mean other issues aren’t important. In addition the insane people shooting up schools are not those with “criminal records” shooting up others in “public housing”. What exactly is your issue with an event designed for kids to be empowered and have a voice? Sounds like not so thinly-veiled bigotry really.

Dory, I have a problem with adults using kids as pawns.

how about protesting shabby schools that fail to teach kids how to read, write and do math?

So, Dory, what you are saying is that school shootings are not a gun problem but a mental illness problem? Bingo!! If we are going to protest school gun violence, we need to protest ALL gun violence. And mental illness needs to be part of that conversation.

Dory, you folks on the hard left need to stop throwing the word “bigot” at everyone who dares challenge your beliefs.
