March for Our Lives

BSAC young people marched in solidarity with over 50,000 others people from Madison Park High School to Boston Common.  Young people, parents, teachers and allies all came together to push for common sense gun policies and to make connections between suburban and urban gun violence.  

Thanks to BPS Superintendent Tommy Chang for supporting us at the event!

On March 20th, BSAC, along with young people from the Boston's Mayor's Youth Council and St. Stephens Church Youth Programs, j oined high school students from across Boston to discuss gun violence with student leaders from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

We learned about their experiences , talked about what gun violence looks like in our commun ities in Boston, and finally discussed how to build our collective power as young people to end this epidemic. Thanks to the Harvard Kennedy School for organizing and hosting this amazing conversation!
