Students, parents hold gun control rally in Santa Rosa
Typically, student observe President’s Day by looking back at American History. In Santa Rosa Monday morning, their parents used this holiday to look current events directly in the eye.
Hence the children and parents are gathering in Santa Rosa’s Courthouse Square at a #Weetoo grassroots rally for children’s safety in support of more gun control.
“This is cathartic and commemorative,” said promoter Michelle Gervais, who wants people to rise up, “Not to argue, but to act in the spirit of right makes might. As adults we need to let the children lead us, letting our light shine.”
The rally is gaining momentum on Facebook:
Congressman Mike Thompson (D – CA 5th District) will send a representative, as will Congressman Jared Huffman (D – CA 2nd District), plus county supervisors and Santa Rosa councilmembers.
At 1 p.m., organizers plan to march around the Square.
