News From Masters
Seniors June Kitahara, Dexter Kalderon, Kat Roberts and Heather Smith launched deARm in response to last month’s tragic school shooting in Parkland, FL, with the goal of advocating for school safety and gun control.
The group of seniors, along with other students, will join the nationwide movement March for Our Lives in one of the many marches taking place in the United States and around the world on March 24. Students interested in participating will meet at the circle in front of Masters Hall, and will depart around 9:00 AM to take a train to New York City.
As explained on the March for Our Lives website, the movement was “created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar.”
On March 24, children and families in support of March for Our Lives will take to the streets of cities around the country to demand that student lives and safety become a priority.
March For Our Lives organizers emphasize that school safety is not a political issue, and add that “there cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing and growing.”
