Students invited to meet (and produce public service announcements) to coordinate local gun safety
Release Date: February 21, 2018

Young survivors of Wednesday's school shooting in Florida have announced a national march on Washington on March 24 to demand political action on gun control. They want children and families to become a priority to US lawmakers and are encouraging protests to happen simultaneously all over the country in towns, villages and cities on the same day.  As Cameron Kasky, a survivor from the recent tragedy said "we are losing our lives while adults are playing around." 


It's important for students to get involved in our political process. If you know of a student who attends any school district within Greenburgh who is planning to attend the protest or wants to organize local protests please advise. I would like to invite the students to meet together and will highlight their involvement. The town also has a cable TV studio open to all that can be used to produce, tape and air public service announcements and cable TV shows. These announcements can help spread the word.  Today's students can use this tragedy to help change America for the better and to learn how government works. Please be advised that our cable TV studio is also available to  those who have different views on this and any other issue.

 

If any student has any additional recommendations as to additional action steps that the town or area schools should take that will make them feel safer- their thoughts are also welcome and appreciated. If a meeting is organized with students, I will invite the police to participate. And, will be shared with the police and school administrators. Please e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com.
