Join us Saturday, March 24th @ 1pm on the Village Green

On Saturday, March 24, Orcas Islanders will gather for a “sibling march” as
part of the March For Our Lives movement. The march is one of hundreds
happening around the country planned by students and survivors of gun
violence in communities big and small, in Washington DC and in all 50
states, continuing the movement begun with the school walkouts on March
14. The national day of action on March 24 will focus on calling for
lawmakers to make students’ lives and safety a priority and to pass
common-sense gun safety legislation.

Concerned Islanders will meet at 1:00 pm at the Eastsound Village Green
and march peacefully through Eastsound: up North Beach Rd. to School
Street, past Orcas School, down Madrona St. to Rose Street, along Rose
St. to Prune Alley, down Prune Alley to Main St., and back up North Beach
Rd. to the Eastsound Village Green, where they will hear from San Juan
County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Amy Vira and other speakers, with an
opportunity for exchange of ideas. Community members are encouraged
to carry signs expressing their views on gun violence and their concern for
children’s lives and safety. For more information on the marches
