March for Our Lives Billings
On February 14th, 2018, a nineteen-year-old man entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida with a semi-automatic gun and killed 17 people. In Billings, Montana we are sick and tired of the school shootings and demand change. On March 24th, we will be taking to the streets to demand that students lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. This march is completely organized by an array of different high school students in Billings, Montana. We are affiliated to the March for Our Lives march in Washington DC but just a smaller branch, to do the march for people in the community. We will not be giving money to the March for Our Lives organization but we will be using the money to put on the march in Billings and any extra money unused will go to various organizations! The city requires us to have permits as well as barricades for the march which add up to be quite the expense. We also are raising money to have a stage and sound system for some guest speakers that will make an appearance! Again, this march is completely student ran so we really appreciate any donations. We look forward to the march and hope to see you there! https://www.marchforourlives.com/+ Read More
Hi all, just for another update to clarify some things. My name is Clara Bentler and I am the lead for fundraising for our March. I will be withdrawing the funds with my name and putting it into a short term checking account specifically for our March! Thank you all so much for your donations!
Hi all! Thank you so much for all of your donations! This is surreal! Just for a quick update, we made our own branch off of the official "March For Our Lives" campaign and started one for Billings Montana. Leaders in our organization will be withdrawing the funds and using them to buy the permits we need to the march as well as the barricades and stage and sound system, etc. The funds will be withdrawn whenever our group needs money to (for example) book the microphone and speakers or purchase the permit and barricades for the march! Thank you all again for your support! We are so excited!
