Saturday, March 24

11 - 4 PM: Noon March For Our Lives - Tucson
Hosted by Tucson Stands Up

March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now. It doesn’t have to be this way. Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future. Their young voices will be heard. Stand with us on March 24. Refuse to allow one more needless death. MARCH FOR OUR LIVES!

The march is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am at Jacome Plaza in Downtown Tucson and will conclude at the University of Arizona Mall.

Due to the march taking place on the streetcar alignment on 4th Ave. and University Blvd., Sun Link service will be suspended from Helen St. to 4th Ave. & 9th St. from 11:15 a.m. until the march participants are safely on the University of Arizona campus.

During that time, Sun Link will only operate from the Mercado District to 4th Ave. & 9th St. Before the march, participants can park and ride Sun Link to Jacome Plaza.

SunGO Tickets can be purchased at any one of the Sun Link streetcar stops, at a transit center ticket vending machine, at any SunGO Sales Outlet, or on the GoTucson Transit app. The cost of a 1-Day SunGO Ticket to ride the streetcar is $4.50. If paying with cash value on a SunGO Card, the cost per ride is $1.75 on Sun Tran and Sun Link. - more - Cash is not accepted once on the streetcar, so each passenger is required to have a SunGO product or pass on the GO Tucson Transit mobile app.

2:30 Republican Candidate Forum - Reporters Banned

The Republican gathering is a candidate forum organized by the Pima County Republican Club that’s billed as a pubic event organized for Pima County Republicans, but it takes a $7.50 ticket to attend. Except for reporters, who have been banned. Pima County Republican Party Char David Eppihimer said the decision to keep reporters out was made by the venue, not the party. He said the Mountain Oyster Club has had a long-standing rule that prohibits any member of the media from attending events there.

Washington DC: 8 AM EDT · March for Science

In 2017, more than one million people around the world gathered to defend science for the common good and its role in policy and society. Since then, science has continued to face increasing threats at the federal, state, and local levels. But science will not be silenced - and it’s time to unite again. This year, let’s come together to send a message: we will hold our elected and appointed officials responsible for enacting equitable, evidence-based policies that serve all communities. Let’s use our collective voices to send a powerful message to policymakers and those running for office in 2018 - over the phone, at town halls and community meetings, and at the ballot box. We march for many reasons, but unite to defend science -- because science belongs to us all.
