Alumni Council Organizes Antioch Meetup at March for Our Lives

Los Angeles Alumni council protest photoMarch for Our Lives took place in Downtown Los Angeles and in other cities across the nation and around the world on Saturday, March 24, 2018. Protesters gathered at Pershing Square and marched to City Hall, where speeches were held by the mayor and guest speakers, including survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Thousands of people gathered together  to raise their voices against gun violence

Students, alumni, and faculty took part thanks to the Antioch University Los Angeles Alumni Council who helped organize the meetup.

“We are here in solidarity with the students for this fight,” said Wendy Chen, President of the AULA Alumni Council. “Too many lives have been lost to gun violence and to quote the students, enough is enough! We are here to join the students, to stand beside them, and demand gun control.”

The march downtown was one of the 800 sibling marches held across the country. Reports are estimating the turnout for the March for Our Lives to be up to 2 million, making it one of the largest protests in American history and one of the largest student-led protests to be held since the Vietnam War.
