An open letter to Women’s March leadership: please support Parkland students on March 24

The Women’s March should collaborate with and support student-led efforts not pre-empt them.

… maybe the adults have gotten used to saying ‘it is what it is,’ but if [we] students have learned anything, it’s that if you don’t study, you will fail. And in this case if you actively do nothing, people continually end up dead, so it’s time to start doing something. ~ Emma Gonzales, 17 February 2018

UPDATE: According to NationalSchoolWalkout, the Women’s March has agreed to collaborate. There is merit in two walkouts, given varying spring break schedules around the country. Here’s hoping that the Women’s March board will collaborate with the March 24th event as well.

Collaboration should be the focus

We can’t let innocent people’s deaths be in vain. We need to work together beyond political parties to make sure this never happens again. ~ Christine Yared, 18 February 2018
