Join us at the Theater in the American Church on March 22nd for the Paris March For Our Lives PRE-RALLY. We are planning an evening of action two days before the March 24th Rally, and we are calling on you to come make a difference!
We are inviting gun control activists to come speak to us to start off the night, before we break for actions and activities that will be set up around the theater.
The first and most important: VOTER REGISTRATION. We know that voting from abroad is difficult, but we will have VoteFromAbroad specialists on site to get you registered (we are especially looking at you, students!). Our specialists are also able to train people to register voters, so if you'd like to get training, here is the chance to make contacts.
We will also have stations to:
---write to your legislator (both physical postcards, postage already paid for, and emailed copies)
---sign the March For Our Lives petition (Click here) and the Paris Resolution on Gun Violence in the US
---make posters for the big event two days later!
We have also invited some local musicians to play for us as we connect, unite, register, and TAKE ACTION AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE.
The most important way to make our voices heard will be in the voting booth this November. Refuse to allow one more needless death. Not one more. #IWillVote
Our first Get Out the Vote event of 2018 will start with a short introduction to helping people vote from abroad. Then we’ll all start calling Americans on the Riviera to encourage them to register for the 2018 elections. We will also have an opportunity to show our support for gun-control by taking part in a Social Media response in support of the worldwide March for Life.
We’ll have pizza; we’ll have fun; we’ll be helping win back Congress!
RSVP is essential.
March with us as we join the worldwide movement in support of SENSIBLE GUN CONTROL and the Parkland student survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting. Bring your own banners. We especially welcome young people of any nationality to take part – this action towards common sense and a government that keeps its citizens’ best interests in mind traverses all boundaries! If you wish to speak, read prose or poetry or perform, please contact us at email@example.com
Meet us at 2 pm at the place de la Rotonde (the big fountain) on the side where it connects to the Cours Mirabeau.
MARCH FOR OUR LIVES
A Big Rally In Paris, Place du Trocadero in the 16th
Demonstrations will be held around the world in coordination with young people of Parkland. Instead of crying they are speaking. Instead of mourning they are protesting. And instead of waiting, the children of Stoneman Douglas High School are begging for our help. The Youth Caucus will be working in solidarity with high school and university students, the American Church, women's groups (Indivisibles, PAGE-Paris) Our Revolution, The DAF Diversity Caucus, The DAF Women's Caucus and many others.
Bring your posters and signs!
MARCH FOR OUR LIVES
Saturday, March 24 at 3:00 pm
The students and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.
Join us in Bordeaux on Saturday, March 24 so that the collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard from around the world. We’ll be meeting in front to the Grand Theatre and marching to the US Consulate on the Quais des Chartrons.
We would especially like to welcome youth groups to join us.
Choose a slogan, make a sign and let’s March For Our Lives!
In solidarity with the "March for Our Lives" on March 24, Democrats Abroad Lyon is organizing this rally to remember children slain in recent school massacres and show our support of the brave and eloquent students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
We will commemorate the children and young adults who lost their lives in mass shootings in their schools in America by reading aloud their names. From Columbine to Sandy Hook to Parkland...
And, along with those marching around the world, we will demand sensible gun control legislation so that the lives of Americans and their safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in US schools today!
In America, no child should go to school afraid of being shot. No parent should send their child to school in fear of gun violence. So, to the US Congress, we say #neveragain #thoughtsandprayersarenotenough
For more information on "March for Our Lives," you can check out their website: https://marchforourlives.com
If you would like to volunteer to help with the organization of the rally, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you there!
This sister rally in solidarity with the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., led by the survivors of the Parkland high school massacre, is timed (4:00pm to 5:30 pm) to coincide with that march. The goal is to show the support of Americans worldwide for more sensible gun control laws in the USA and opposition to the National Rifle Association. All nationalities are welcome. We especially invite young people to attend.
Please bring a candle and something to contain it and light it. Make and bring appropriate posters. If you would like to share an experience you have had involving guns, please contact us at email@example.com. In addition, please contact us if you would like to propose music, art or street theatre at the rally.
Join us in Strasbourg on Saturday, 24 March as we join in the worldwide show of support for the Parkland victims’ friends and families and their efforts to bring about meaningful change to end gun violence in the US.
