Town Hall Seattle is hosting the March for Our Lives Glimmer of Hope Tour that will make its only Seattle appearance on Sunday, October 21st at 7:30pm at Temple De Hirsch Sinai in Capitol Hill.
The event brings survivors of the Parkland shooting to share Glimmer of Hope, a book by the founders of the movement that tells the story of how a group of teenagers raced to channel their rage and sorrow into action–and went on to create one of the largest youth-led movements in global history.
The evening will feature Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students David Hogg, Alex Wind, and Jammal Lemy, from Parkland, Florida, who will bring their urgent conversation to Seattle, offering us a chance to come together and take action, remove to remain passive, and work to create a safe and compassionate nation for our youth.
March for Our Lives is a student-led movement in support of tighter gun control. They urge for universal background checks on all gun sales, raising the federal age of gun ownership and possession to 21, closing gun show loopholes, restore the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban, and ask for a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines and bump stocks in the United States.
