For this event, the hosts will be providing the signs — so just bring yourself and your friends. We ask that you dress in BLACK to show our united support for the end of GUN VIOLENCE. We will ALSO give you a strip of ORANGE cloth to be worn as an armband or a headband. (We encourage you to wear the orange band all day long.)
We invite you to join us at 10 AM — in coordination with school walk-outs and rallies taking place nationally on April 20, 2018, the anniversary of the Columbine shootings.

Most Americans are weighed down with the fact that so little been done in the last 20 years to stop gun violence in our schools. To mark the Columbine anniversary and inspired by the courageous young people of Parkland, Florida, we will gather for the National Day of Action Against Gun Violence in Schools.
Together, we will take up the students’ call of “No more.” No more children murdered in school. No more parents sending a child to school who never comes home. No more teachers, coaches, principals, librarians or any school staff standing between students and a gunman. No more. Come stand in the place of the kids who died at Columbine. Give voice to the resolve of the nation to end gun violence.
Meet us in front of the Ventura County Government Center. Wear black clothing. Bring your friends and carpool. We follow all laws. Park in adjacent parking lots or side streets.
