Neighborhood Youth Organize Rally Against Gun Violence

Hello all,

My name is Jancyn Appel, I’m a junior at Pembroke Hill, and I’m one of the organizers of the rally against gun violence happening at Pilgrim Chapel. On April 20th, myself, a group of organizers, and students from over 10 KC Metro schools will gather in the park directly across from Pilgrim Chapel. As a member of the Hyde Park community, I can assure you that this event is safe (we have a city permit and insurance), not politically affiliated, and a place for those who hate what gun violence does to the community and its members. After living in Hyde Park for so long, I know these are all things our neighborhood cares about. We want a thriving, safe, community that is full of people that also want the best for those around them. What I’m asking from you all is support. Whether it’s monetary (gofundme.com/kcmetrowalkout), or just spreading the word. I believe that this student-led effort shows the fortitude of the children in our community and how willing they are to fight for change. 
Thank you so much for your time!
