How can we sustain the momentum for curbing America's gun violence epidemic that has been created by the Parkland survivors and last week's March for Our Lives? Indivisible: Conejo is working with a coalition of student leaders and gun-violence-prevention groups to build on recent successes - beginning with a protest outside a "Friends of the NRA" fundraiser in Oxnard on Saturday 4/7.
Conejo Valley high school students' participation in the National Student Walkout on March 14 and the upcoming March For Our Lives -- sandwiched around the shooting at the Oaks Mall on the 17th and multiple threats of violence at Westlake High School -- have all brought local awareness of our national epidemic of gun violence to a fever pitch. Indivisible: Conejo remains ready to assist our students as they participate in the march this Saturday and another walkout on 4/20 -- and we remain at the forefront of the debate over how to enhance gun restrictions and keep our community safe.
Our CVUSD Challengers Forum on March 4 gave the candidates a chance to present their visions for our school district's future -- setting them up to defeat extremists Mike Dunn and John Andersen in November. Speaking of which, we're getting ready for Sunday's first Conejo Valley canvass with the DCCV, in Newbury Park. And we're helping area students organize their participation in L.A.'s March for Our Lives on 3/24. Check our calendar for details!
Even as we get ready for Indivisible: Conejo's CVUSD Challengers Forum, coming up this Sunday, we're helping facilitate area students' plans for participating in upcoming actions protesting America's epidemic of gun violence -- including school walkouts and the March For Our Lives on 3/24. We're also preparing for our first canvassing day in the Conejo Valley on 3/11 (in partnership with the DCCV) and our St. Patrick's Day trip to beautiful Bakersfield (to flip CA's 21st congressional district)!
