On March 14, 2018, nearly 1.6 million students staged school walkouts across the nation to protest Congress’ inaction on gun violence. That was just the beginning. 47 children and teens fall victim to gun violence every day. Young people — especially Black and Brown youth — are disproportionately impacted by gun violence.
On the one-year anniversary of the #ENOUGH walkouts, Women’s March Youth Empower is organizing the Enough! Youth Week of Action.
Over the week ofMarch 11, young activists will create artwork focused on the number 47, and host youth-led town halls on gun violence. These creative actions will take place throughout the week, with the town halls happening on March 14 in communities across the country. To conclude the week of action, Youth Empower is supporting the Youth Climate Strike US on March 15.
