MARCH FOR OUR LIVES - Community Gathering and Conversation

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

Whidbey Island Center for the Arts welcomes the community to come together to address an issue in our society that deeply affects our children. What can we do collectively to make our community safe? This is a chance to be heard and a chance to listen with respect.

Jessica Johnson, President of the South Whidbey High School’s Social Justice Club, together with other SWHS students will lead the evening with their thoughts about the March for our Lives national movement to protect our children from violence in schools.  Also present to join the discussion are South Whidbey School District Superintendent Jo Moccia, Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson, Langley Mayor Tim Callison, and Chief Criminal Deputy for the Island County Sheriff’s Office Rick Felici to speak to the current preparations in response to an active shooter incident.

This is not a time to polarize our community. It is a time to find common ground and common-sense solutions. We invite you to be a part of the conversation to keep our community safe.
