So… who are we endorsing??
March For Our Lives has not and does not have plans to endorse any candidate for elected office.
We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that remains focused on our core mission to harness the power of young people across the country to fight for sensible gun violence prevention policies that save lives. Funds raised by our organization are spent to that end and are not used to support any candidate or political party.
We are delighted that some of our members and founders have chosen to participate in the political process – in their personal capacity – and encourage young people everywhere to evaluate the candidates for themselves. On November 3, 2020, it is our hope that voters will select those candidates committed to sensible reforms to the nation’s gun laws and work to dramatically reduce the nearly 40,000 gun deaths that occur each year in the United States.
We also ask that all candidates review our Peace Plan For A Safer America and present their own comprehensive plan to end the gun violence epidemic, starting with a firm commitment to take swift, bold action to reduce the number of gun deaths in this country immediately. Gun violence manifests differently in different communities: suicides, mass shootings, everyday gun violence, accidental shootings, and more. To address the full scope of gun violence in this country we must go after its root causes.
