Students Join National March

Hundreds of Alameda students marched through the rain Wednesday, March 14, as part of a national movement calling for gun reform and improved safety measures in schools. Students marched down Central Avenue to a rally at Lower Washington Park. The rally included student and adult speakers as well as tables for voter registration, letter-writing campaigns and education around gun laws. Quite a few local media outlets, march-safety volunteers and Alameda Police were present to ensure the event occured safely.
