March to end gun violence coming to Williamsburg this Saturday

Not One More, a march to end gun violence, will be at Duke of Gloucester Street Saturday.

The protest is a follow up to March for Our Lives, a protest for stricter gun laws after the shooting deaths at Stoneman Douglas High School last year.

“Dozens of bills for common-sense gun violence prevention were introduced in the General Assembly session this year, and every single one died in committee,” said Christine Payne, vice chair for the Williamsburg-James City County Democrats, in a prepared statement. “These are measures that would save lives and make our schools and towns safer.”

The march will begin with speeches and conclude with a march down Duke of Gloucester Street.

This protest is co-sponsored by Students Demand Action, the Peninsula Progressive Network, W-JCC Democrats, Williamsburg Indivisible Group, Peninsula Indivisible, Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists and Common Ground Williamsburg.

The march will begin at 2 p.m. March 23, at the Capital of Colonial Williamsburg, 500 E. Duke of Gloucester St.
