Hundreds of people gathered in Green Bay on Saturday for the March for Our Lives walk and rally, as part of a student-led nationwide effort to spark change and end gun violence. The March for Our Lives website reported that there were over 800 events coordinated with the group across the world, with the main march taking place in Washington DC. The Green Bay march started at the City Deck on Washington Street and concluded at the Brown County Courthouse, which is just less than a half mile walk. Wisconsin State Senator Dave Hansen joined the rally and says it was an honor to join the cause.
Hansen adds that he feels a need to make changes so that his grandchildren can feel safe in school. For further information on the March For Our Lives national campaign, or to sign their petition calling for gun reform visit their website https://marchforourlives.com/.
