Our Mission

Our Mission Statement


In solidarity with the National Walkouts and the March For Our Lives movements, we, the students and supporters of Wichita, Kansas, will strap on our walking shoes, pick up our signs, and use our voices! We will respectfully gather at Park Elementary School, one of the oldest schools here in Sedgwick county, and bring our voices and feet from the school to the courthouse where students, teachers, and other community members will speak out against the gun violence that has taken so many young lives, demanding action to fight against such violence. We should not be going to school in fear, and we want as much support as we can get for this cause from every age group in the community. Join us as we demand action in an effort to save America’s children.

Official March for Our Lives Mission Statement


Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives. 


March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns.  March For Our Lives believes the time is now. 


On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard. 


School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing.  The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues.  No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country. 


Every kid in this country now goes to school wondering if this day might be their last. We live in fear. 


It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard. 


Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death.
