NFTY Teens Mobilizing Marchers for Gun Violence Prevention

As part of the ongoing campaign to act to end gun violence in the United States, NFTY: The Reform Jewish Youth Movement is organizing efforts to get Reform teens and college students to the national March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, March 24, and to connect people and resources with the dozens of other marches happening around the country.

Here’s what’s in the works right now and ways to stay up-to-date on all the quickly-evolving plans:

  • Other Reform Movement Events: Reform congregations in the Washington, D.C., area are planning other events to welcome marchers, build community, and celebrate Shabbat. Register now.
  • Transportation: We are exploring transportation options from major cities to Washington, D.C., and will share that information soon.
  • College Students: NFTY alumni are organizing college students across U.S. campuses to attend the March in Washington D.C. Get connected
