In March, people from EDP pulled together, on short notice, to raise funds and send eight EDC high school students to Washington DC to participate in the March for Our Lives. The students were chosen via an essay contest.
“The March for Our Lives in Washington, DC was a transformative event. From the moment we landed, to the moment we boarded the plane home, each and every person in our group was challenged to expand their spirit, confront their biases, and take the messages of that event back to their community to give meaning to the lives lost. I feel fortunate to have been on the trip and to have experienced it with these intelligent, sensitive, and wise students from our county. I can’t wait to share our journey in the coming weeks,”
Sean Frame, one of the adult chaperones on the trip.
On April 22nd, the students will talk about their experiences and what they learned in DC and in the March. The Meeting and Special Presentation will be at the Placerville Town Hall, 549 Main Street, from 4 to 6 p.m. eldoradoprogressives.org/events-page/2018/4/22/march-for-our-lives-presentation
