Our Mission

The mission of March for Our Lives Seattle is to demand that comprehensive and effective legislation be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. 

No special interest group or political agenda is more critical than the timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues rampant in our country.
