WALKOUT MARCH #ENOUGH to Gun Violence (next one is April 20!)

Read about Roberson High Schools Walkout – The Asheville Citizen-Times

Hundreds of thousands of students walked out of school to protest—many of them engaging in social justice actions for the first time—and to say #ENOUGH to gun violence in America. It may have been many of these students’ first protest, but we know it won’t be their last.

Did you stage a walkout at your school or do you know someone who did? Fill out this form to help us get a full headcount of how many students participated in this incredible day of action!

We couldn’t be prouder of the powerful Women’s March Youth Empower organizers who were the driving force behind today’s walkouts. And this day was just the beginning. We hope to see all of you in Washington, D.C. and town squares in cities across the country on March 24 for #MarchForOurLives. And we should all be gearing up to support the walkout on April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine shooting.

Wear your walkout pride in style by purchasing this limited edition t-shirt designed by our very own Women’s March Youth Empower organizer, 19-year-old Ziad.

It’s been inspiring to see the young activists of Women’s March Youth Empower in action and it’s a privilege to support their work. Donate here to provide Women’s March with the resources to keep building the Youth Empower network. There’s no shortage of young leaders out there!

The students of Women’s March Youth Empower, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, the National Student Walkout, and gun violence prevention movements everywhere, are leading. We will continue to follow them.

In community (and in awe),

Success of students’ gun control walkout bodes well for March for Our Lives

From the women’s marches, to airport protests, to packed town hall meetings, millions of Americans have been seeking out ways to curb what they see as the damaging actions of an unpredictable regime. In the process, they’ve begun to lay the foundations for a new era of grassroots activism that’s becoming one of the defining news stories of the Trump era.

The Guardian is launching The Resistance Now to cover the emerging campaigns around topics such as climate change, reproductive rights, equality, immigration, racial justice and more.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
