Join SPSSI for "March for Our Lives"

The tragic events of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Parkland, FL remind us of the vital need to address the gun violence epidemic in America. As a scientific organization, APA routinely advocates for a public health approach to gun violence prevention and supports evidence-based programs and policies that can reduce the occurrence and impact of firearm-related violence in the United States. 

On Saturday, March 24, we urge our members to come together in Washington, DC and around the globe to support the "March for Our Lives." Psychologists have a unique and much needed perspective to add to the gun violence discussion.

Day of the March
SPSSI will join with the APA, who will provide a meeting place for psychologists and their friends and family, in John Marshall Park (in front of the US District Court on 4th and C St., NW). Join us from 11 AM onwards to meet fellow psychologists and show your support for evidence-based solutions to the gun violence epidemic. 

The March for Our Lives is scheduled to start at 12 PM and will take place between 3rd and 12th Street on Pennsylvania Avenue. 

If you can't make it to D.C., consider joining one of several hundred announced satellite marches.

Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
