The North Park Blocks is proud to serve as the staging area for the “March for Our Lives PDX” Event Facebook Page
On Saturday March 24, student organizers from Portland-area middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities will lead March for Our Lives PDX. Thousands of Portlanders will join more than 500 worldwide events to demand an end to gun violence in our schools and communities.
Supporters will gather at the North Park Blocks at 10:00 a.m. and march to Pioneer Courthouse Square from 10:30 to noon. The Grammy-winning band and Portland-based band, “Portugal. The Man”, will perform a concert in the Square beginning at noon. The event is expected to wrap up by 2 pm.
Event organizers have worked with the police and proper authorities and have permits for the march and gathering at the Square. As of today, 7000 people are signed up to attend.
Marchers are encouraged to use public transportation, expect downtown to be very busy on Saturday.
