HOW MARCH FOR OUR LIVES LEADERS PLAN GET-OUT-THE-VOTE SUMMER BUS TOUR!! (720 hits)


For Immediate Release From AOL!

Student leaders from the March for Our Lives movement announced on Monday that they plan to hit the road this summer for a nationwide bus tour aimed at mobilizing their young constituents and getting them registered to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

During a press conference in the City of Parkland Amphitheater in Parkland, Florida — the same city where a Feb. 14 school shooting left 17 students and staff members dead — key leaders from the movement announced the March for Our Lives: Road to Change tour, which will last 60 days and span 75 stops in at least 20 states this summer.

According to the group’s website, the tour will be split into two distinct arms. One bus will trundle across Florida, with young organizers planning to speak with voters about gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, who once bragged on Twitter that he’s a “proud #NRASellout!” The other bus will chart a bicoastal journey across states including Iowa, Texas, California, South Carolina and Connecticut, focusing on educating young voters and challenging politicians in NRA strongholds.

“Now is the time for the youth vote to stand up to the gun lobby when no one else will and say no to these dangerous policies and loopholes that are allowing kids to be gunned down every day in every community,” said Cameron Kasky, a recent Stoneman Douglas graduate. “We’ve had enough. By empowering millions of young people eligible to vote for the first time this year, we can bring common sense to our state houses and Congress.”
