Following the recent tragedy at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, an estimated 500,000 protesters plan to rally in Washington, D.C. to voice their concerns regarding current gun control laws, with many more sister marches scheduled to take place across the nation. All rallies will take place Saturday, March 24, 2018.
Shofur would like to show our support of their efforts, not only by providing charter buses to those who wish to attend the rally; but also by donating to causes that advocate for safer school environments.
We’re happy to announce that for each bus booked through Shofur*, we will donate $150.00 to one of three anti gun-violence campaigns. We’ve carefully chosen Sandy Hook Promise, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and the March for Our Lives fund as our top choices.
When you call 1-800-436-8719 to book your bus, ask about the upcoming march to choose which of these organizations will receive the donation for your trip-- even if your trip doesn’t involve going to the march.
To all protesters:
As a child, I saw my home country of Albania torn apart by war. My family feared for our safety every time we walked out of our door, driving us to flee to America-- where we dreamed of a life that was free of violence. This is the greatest country in the world; but it breaks my heart that children can’t feel safe here.
All children deserve a safe environment in which they can learn and grow. Safety should be the number-one priority of all educational institutions, and this march, along with these causes, represents a commitment to a more secure world for our young ones. Limiting access to firearms is the first step in bringing our nation out of a time when mass shootings are a regular occurance.
I’m happy to supply as many buses as I can to help the supporters of this cause get to Washington. I proudly support all of those directly and indirectly affected by recent shootings as they fight for the changes we need to see in this country.
I stand by you in solidarity as you journey to Washington on March 24, 2018.
-Armir Harris, CEO, Shofur
