UPDATE: 2 local events planned

March for our lives


Fueled with energy from the Valentine’s Day shooting claiming 17 lives, local organizers are planning two March for Our Lives events on March 24 in Harrisburg's Capitol Region.

So far, events calling for gun control legislation are scheduled for Harrisburg (March 24, noon, State Capitol Steps) and Lancaster (March 24, Binn's Park, 100 N. Queen Street, noon).

Lancaster March for Our Lives organizers have changed the starting point of their event. "Due to crowd size and other logistical matters, the starting point for the march has changed to CLIPPER MAGAZINE STADIUM, 650 N Prince St, Lancaster," the group noted in a post on Social Media. "We will meet there at noon and then march to Binn's Park where the program will begin around 1 p.m."

An event originally schedules in Carlisle listed on marchforourlives.com for March 11 has apparently been cancelled according to an email sent March 7.

Events are also planned for Reading, West Chester, King of Prussia, and Wilmington, DE.
