There have been 19 school shootings since the beginning of this year. 19!
We demand change.
On March 24, we will join forces with other passionate community members and march downtown for the lives of students across this country. The event is being led by a group of Cleveland students who are fed up with the inaction of the government and the failure of adults to protect us in our schools.
Date: March 24, 2018
Time: 10:00 a.m. (NCJW/Cleveland gathers in front of Old Stone Church downtown*, 91 Public Square, Cleveland, OH 44113), 11:00 a.m. Rally begins
(*If weather is inclement, we will change location to inside Tower City)

- Join our sign-making session. We will be hosting a sign-making “party” on Wednesday, March 21 from 1-3pm at the Beachwood Public Library to prep for the rally. Supplies will be provided. Please email Lynn Kleinman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
- Stay informed. We encourage you to watch this film (and even host a screening at your home) — Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and The NRA — prior to the march. It tells the stories of how guns, and the billions made off of them, affect the lives of everyday Americans. It features personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims’ families.
