March For Our Lives was a huge event all across the country, and of course all across our SoCal swing districts and neighbor cities.
Believe it or not, March For Our Lives was not the only event going on over the weekend. Volunteers were on hand everywhere to collect a huge haul of voter registrations and pictures including members of our own Swing SoCal Left inner circle of project managers. You may have been at one event or even two, but nobody could see it all so here’s a March For Our Lives Weekend Tour district-by-district:
Many residents from CA25 and districts adjacent to to Los Angeles were drawn downtown. Nonetheless, hundreds more from across the Santa Clarita Valley gathered in Bridgeport Park to make their voices heard. The Santa Clarita Signal was on hand to document the event and high school student Kyle Tisdale captured scenes fromt he event in an inspiring video.
Here’s a link to Kyle’s video:
They’ll be be back again in Chino this weekend if you’d care to come along.
That afternoon in CA39, hundreds gathered to march on Birch Street in Brea:
No rest for Swing Left Riverside. They were back marching door-to-door in CA39 the next day.
Energy has really exploded in CA39 recently. Lots of events, please visit the calendar and sign up.
In CA45, more than 2,000 gathered outside the offices of NRA all-star district representative Mimi Walters.
Next door in CA48, by the LA Times estimate, 2000 people congregated at Huntington’s Lake Park for a march to City Hall. The rally was organized by students in the Huntington Beach Union High School district in conjunction with the Huntington Beach Youth Board.
Swing SoCal Left co-founder Troy Takaka and volunteer Amir Talai drove down from Los Angeles to register voters at the San Clemente march, which was organized by first timers Becca Roth and Amber Saldana. They met up with three members of Flip the 49th! Neighbors in action including Cipiriano Vargar. There were 1500 people on hand. The group registered 70 people to vote and signed up 50-60 to volunteer with Flip.
That’s everything. Unless you count San Diego….
