The upcoming “March for our Lives” rallies planned around the nation in response to the Parkland student shootings last month are getting financial help from a well-organized activist group — at the rate of $5,000 for each event.
A mega-march will take place in the nation’s capital on March 24. There will also be a multitude of “sibling marches” in all 50 states according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun violence prevention organization primarily underwritten with funds from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“Everytown is providing structural support for organic local marches planned in communities of all sizes across the nation,” the group said Tuesday. “Everytown previously announced $2.5 million in grants to provide 500 organizers with resources of $5,000 per march for associated operational expenses.
The group also is raising money for the marches through branded merchandise — a “March Merch” collection of shirts and hoodies emblazoned with the “March for our Lives” logo, ranging in price from $25-31.
