On February 14th, 17 innocent students lost their lives when a gunman walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The survivors of the school shooting went through hell — and they decided to do something about it. The teens organized March For Our Lives, a giant protest that calls for stricter gun control laws. The official protest in Washington, D.C., as well as the other protests throughout the nation, happens on Saturday, March 24th. If you’re planning on getting involved, you’ll need a sign that makes a statement. We compiled a few March For Our Lives sign ideas to inspire you.
Whether you want to speak out about gun control or call attention to a specific part of the issue, there are plenty of poster ideas out there you can copy or use as motivation to create your own. Many were spotted during National Walkout Day on March 14th, a day when students and teachers throughout the U.S. walked out of schools at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes to honor the 17 students who died in Parkland, Florida.
It’s never been more important to speak up about gun control issues and to try to make a change. Let’s learn from the students who survived the Florida shooting and do something to make a difference.
