Across the United States, Americans will be marching on 24 March to have their voices heard that having weapons of war freely available is immoral, against the will of the people and just nonsense. We say enough is enough after each mass shooting, but now we are at a point where the politics just might be shifting. Have your voice heard by joining us as we march and sign a condolence wall to send to the victims of the Parkland shooting. Non-Americans are more than welcome at this affirmative event. If you are interested in volunteering, speaking or helping in other ways, please contact us!
We will be conducting voter assistance at the conclusion of the march. Please do stop by our voter assistance tables to request your absentee ballot.

Students, teachers, Americans, Germans, children, adults – all are welcome to participate and make our strong voice heard as we tell our elected officials enough is enough!After gathering at Bottlerplatz (in front of C&A), participants will have the opportunity to peacefully express their thoughts and views on the issue by sharing a personal story, poem, song, etc. with the group. From there, we will march together through the Bonner Innenstadt, stopping at Friedensplatz and Marktplatz.American citizens will also be able to register to vote and request their ballots so that we can make a difference in the upcoming midterm elections.
Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.
The march will began at Opernplatz Frankfurt and we will march to the Römer in the Altstadt. Once we reach the Römer, we will have a GOTV event and sign people up to vote.
Please join us and show your solidarity with the March and people in America.
