“4 the Kids-Kitsap” is a group of Kitsap County retired teachers and concerned citizens, formed since the Parkland school shooting, to connect with local high school students and the community to promote safe schools and leadership for change.

Please join the students and other caring citizens on Saturday, March 24, from noon to 2 p.m. as we gather at the intersection of Silverdale Way and Kitsap Mall Blvd. to promote safe schools free of gun violence. We will be among 500 marches registered to support MARCH FOR OUR LIVES across the nation that day, showing here that Kitsap County cares.

Change is coming, being led by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school students, and now being followed by Dick’s Sporting Goods, Walmart, REI, Fred Meyer, and Sportsman’s Warehouse in various ways: in changed gun-sale restrictions; in banning sales of assault-style rifles; in promoting gun safety with lock box and gun lock giveaways; or in curtailing items of any kind from companies selling firearms. Please show your approval of these retailers’ impressive lead by shopping at their stores and/or expressing appreciation personally or by letter.

With your participation in small ways, things can change. Now is the time.

March with us on March 24. Spread the word! Make and bring a sign if you can!!

4 the Kids-Kitsap,
