Authentic Community Building
Aid & Alliance
March For Our Lives is on a journey to truly support and center the people and communities most impacted by gun violence. Shifting resources through mutual aid is just one way of doing that. We are launching Aid & Alliance, a resource sharing program that will distribute nearly $500k to support anti-violence work led by BIPOC youth organizations and activists on the ground. The spirit of aid and alliance extends beyond this individual program—it is the guiding vision that will carry us forward in 2021.
Our set of policy demands for the Biden-Harris administration to develop a national, comprehensive plan, using executive action and funding, to combat the increasing prevalence of gun violence in America. In order to effectively address the national public health crisis quickly, March For Our Lives is calling on President Joe Biden to appoint a Director of Gun Violence Prevention and act on his campaign promise to dedicate approximately $1 billion to fund evidence-based community intervention programming to tackle urban gun violence in 40 cities across the country in his first 100 days.
