We, the youth of March For Our Lives: Massachusetts, demand that human lives be prioritized over access to guns. We reject systems of white supremacy along with economic and educational inequality that perpetuate the racial and socioeconomic injustices that lead to gun violence. We amplify and emphasize the voices of communities of color, who are disproportionately affected by gun violence and silenced in their calls for reform. And through this work, we seek to engage young people, particularly those closest to the issue, as agents of their own political futures by promoting sociopolitical awareness, education, and political engagement. The young people of Massachusetts won't sit quietly. We must create a society that is just and safe for all, and we will not wait on complacent politicians to do so.
