In conjunction with the March For Our Lives event in Washington D.C., Democrats Abroad Austria and the DAA Youth Caucus will host a march on March 24th that will begin at 3pm at Ballhausplatz. Together we will march to end mass shootings and gun violence in American schools, in solidarity with the survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and young people around the world.
Since 2013, 35 children and 6 adults have been killed in school shootings in the U.S. In addition, 92 children and 12 adults have been injured. Participants will stand with a placard that has the name and age of each person killed and the location where they were killed. DAA will provide the placards and names.
The goal is to show support by Americans worldwide for more sensible gun control laws in the USA and to voice our opposition to the National Rifle Association. All nationalities are welcome. We want to especially invite and encourage young people to attend. Please contact us at email@example.com if you’d like to get involved with the organisation.
If you can't personally attend in Vienna, you can still participate. 1) Send David Heckenberg a private message and you will receive a digital placard, which you can then post on Facebook or Twitter. Alternatively, get a group of people together, take a photo, and send it directly to DAA here on Facebook or Twitter. Include the hashtags #MarchForOurLives #NeverAgain #DemsAustria #DAresists #democratsabroad
