March 14th The Dalles


March 14th 10:00 - 10:17 AM March for Life Students in Solidarity with Parkland Florida students. Join other supporters in either event:

The Dalles High - No direct contact with students at the High School. There is interest to be there for the students regardless.

Columbia Gorge Community College - The Dalles Campus will have an event at Building 3 on the first floor (unless the weather is nice and can be outside) by the fireplace. There will be a voter registration table as well as a student speaker.


The nationwide event on March 14th in communities across the nation to recognize the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida on February 14th is called March For Our Lives, not March For Life.

Amber set up an event on the national March for Life website for an event at The Dalles High School, but then learned that she would not be able to be involved.

Meanwhile, Sloane is helping with an event at CGCC and there will be a speaker and a voter registration table.
