June 3, 10 am – 2 pm

Mural Square, 253 Main St, Poughkeepsie, New York 12601

We, the students of the Hudson Valley, believe changes to gun laws are long overdo. Join us in marching around Mural Square from 10-12, followed by writing letters to officials demanding change from 12:30 to 2:30 at location TBD. More details to come!

Student Organizers: Sabrina Goldfischer, Angela McDevitt, Jacob Gaines, and student committee representing high schools from around the Hudson Valley

We are a network of students bonded by a desire to feel safe at school, and advocate for a tangible change in gun laws on a local and national scale. We welcome everyone to join us in fighting for a change.

This is a peaceful demonstration. Please bring out signs to protest!

Exciting announcement! We will be holding the second part of our event from 12-2:00 at the North River Roasters’ space in the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory (8 N Cherry Street). We will be providing templates to write to local officials, and discussing other ways to take action.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please contact us at hudsonvalleystandsup@gmail.com with any questions.

Stay tuned for more details, but please save the date!
