March for Our Lives

Of the more than 3,000 people who participated in the March for Lives rally and march through downtown Naples on March 24, 2018, 16 were AAUW members and spouses.  The purpose of this rally, organized by students, was to demand stronger gun control laws.  AAUW also staffed a table in Cambier Park, which was visited by many people who asked about our organization, took membership and public policy brochures, and signed up to receive more information.  Thank you to those who joined in the rally and march.  If you wish to take further action, in addition to writing your federal and state representatives, write an e-mail to our five local school board members asking them NOT to implement the School Marshall Program recently passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Governor Scott.  This law would permit school boards to train and arm some teachers and school personnel.  School Board Members can be reached by telephoning 377-0485 or by e-mail:  Erick Carter (cartee1@collierschools.com), Erika Donalds (donale@collierschools.com), Kelly Lichter,(lichteke@collierschools.com), Stephanie Lucarelli (lucars@collierschools.com), and Roy Terry (terryro@collierschools.com).
