Send PCS to March For Our Lives

Students from Potsdam High School are planning a trip to Washington, D.C. for the March For Our Lives. The march takes place on Saturday, March 24 and is advocating for the passage of gun laws that will keep students and others safe from mass shootings like the one in Parkland, Florida. My friends and I were inspired to join this movement and we started to spread the idea around to other students, gathering much interest from our friends and peers. As students, we believe that safety is key in education and are prepared to defend that belief. For more information about the March For Our Lives, visit www.marchforourlives.com

Sadly, because the march was announced so close to the actual day of the event, we have limited time to fundraise. Funding would help cover the cost of transportation, as well as rooming, for the 10 students and 2 chaperones that would be going. I would love to make this trip affordable for all those attending and that is why we are asking for donations. As a school in Upstate New York, many students do not often get the chance to be involved in political activities as direct as a march on Washington. With this trip, students and educators would be provided with a firsthand experience of political change.

Any donations for this trip would be much appreciated; Even a little money goes a long way for one student. By funding this trip you are also funding the possibility of young activists believing they too have a voice. Sometimes in a small town it is hard to remember that we can still make a big impact. Thank you and I hope you consider donating.
