Fired Up! Ready to Go! These were the famous words that President Barack Obama used to electrify crowds all over the United States. It has seemed like there have been some pretty dark times lately but sometimes out of tragedy greatness can be born. On March 24, students from a Parkland, Fl helped organized one of largest youth-led protest movements in a long time. The message was clear: either congress members pass comprehensive gun reforms or prepare to get voted out of office. They had a straightforward plan for youths to register to vote and vote in the 2018 midterm elections. Fairfax Young Democrats are here to help with this goal.
Fairfax Young Democrats will be working with our partners to help flip the 10th Congressional District from an NRA backed Congressperson. We are gearing up to work in the community to get other young people engaged in this important election and we need your help! Join Fairfax Young Democrats and help us proclaim enough is enough.
The epidemic of gun violence continues to plague communities from the farmlands to the inner cities. It is imperative that we take action on simple issues like background checks, and gun shows loopholes. The tragedy in Parkland, Florida has helped galvanize students from all over the United States including Fairfax County to force the issue of gun violence on our legislator's agendas. In solidarity with our high school students, Fairfax Young Democrats will be participating in the March for Our Lives protest in Washington DC on March 24.
Fairfax Young Democrats will be joining our friends at Arlington Young Democrats for this historic event on March 24. WMeet us near the 9th Street and Constitution Avenue entrance of the Sculpture Garden. We encourage students and our young professionals to join us to protest gun violence in our communities.
