Carrying umbrellas, microphones and voices, close to 1000 people marched from the Arcata Playhouse to the Arcata Plaza in solidarity with the national #MarchForOurLives movement.

For speakers like Arcata High School student Mira Obar, the students at Majory Stoneman-Douglas High School, which is approximately 2,681 miles away from Humboldt County, are eloquent, strong and courageous to speak out against the most recent tragedy in Florida. 

Thursday Night Talk: March for Our Lives

The March for Our Lives movement is created, inspired and led by students who refuse to risk their lives while waiting for  adults to take action to stop the epidemic of mass shootings in schools.

Despite experiencing backlash on social media for their advocacy, Humboldt County students join national efforts to create national, state and local change to the ways that guns are purchased.

Arcata High students, Ella Bauer and Mira O’Barr and NPA student, Amelia Parker are planning a school walkout on March 14 and the “March for Our Lives”  which is taking place on March 24 in Washington DC, and in towns around the country including Arcata.
