Please complete this form if you are interested in joining March For Our Lives this year.


The focus of March For Our Lives Iowa is centered around fighting to end gun violence while encouraging youth civic engagement. We do this by working on both sides of the aisle for common sense gun legislation. We want legislators from all parties to take a stand in ending gun violence, ensuring public safety, and supporting our youth. In this chapter we’d be educating Johnston students on current affairs in our world, mostly relating to the gun violence epidemic, from a non-partisan standpoint. Specifically during meetings we’d spur thought provoking, yet peaceful discussions on current Iowa legislation. We want to get Johnston students involved in what’s going on around the world by creating voter registration drives, peaceful protests, and other direct actions.

Email Lauren Wessling if you have any questions.
