Students For Action holding fundraiser Sunday for D.C. trip

Students For Action, a group created by student activists from Bellingham high schools calling for increased school safety, will be travelling to Washington D.C. for the March for Our Lives rally on March 24.

The group will be holding a fundraiser from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday, March 11 at HomeSkillet, at 521 Kentucky Street. The fundraiser will include a silent auction, music, speeches and voter registration. Funds will go toward the trip and for the students to continue their work in Washington state after their return.

Last month, students participated in a district-wide walkout protesting gun violence and calling for increased school safety.

The group also has a GoFundMe page where people can donate.

The primary advisor of this group is John Bower, Fairhaven faculty member and father of one of the Students For Action organizers. Bower can be reached at 360-650-7217 or at john.bower@wwu.edu
