March For Our Lives Jacksonville

Over a thousand students, teachers, families, activists, and many others gathered in Hemming Park for the March for Our Lives Jacksonville. Student leaders and other speakers — impassioned with a clarity of purpose — remembered those lost in Parkland and elsewhere, calling for gun control and other reforms to better protect our schools and communities from gun violence. They also warned legislators who continue to oppose real action that their obstruction would be long remembered at the ballot box. The audience responded with the roar of those no longer willing to tolerate the bland acceptance, misdirection, and placating half measures surrounding gun violence.
