March Against Gun Violence

On March 24th, 2018 Brooklyn Children’s Museum will be joining the New York City March for Our Lives to demand an end to gun violence and advocate for safer communities in Brooklyn, New York, and America. Brooklyn Children’s Museum recognizes the many different forms gun violence takes throughout Brooklyn and across America and believes no child should live in fear at school, at a museum, at home, or outside. We welcome every family in Brooklyn to join us in the March as we stand together and declare that gun violence is not tolerated in our communities.

Meet us at the Matthew P. Sapolin Playground (W 70th St, New York, NY 10023) at 10:00 am before the march begins to create signs, learn chants, and find our voice in the fight against gun violence. Bring water and snacks, wear comfortable shoes, and get ready to make noise in support for safer communities. As a family-friendly marching block, staff from Brooklyn Children’s Museum will be present to help families keep their littlest activists on track and make sure everyone stays safe! Parents must stay with their children at all times.

From March 17th through March 23rd, Brooklyn Children’s Museum will host a sign-making workshop each day from 1:30pm-2:30pm. Join us and create posters and art that you can bring along to the March for Our Lives. Workshop free with museum admission.
