Our movement is powered by volunteers that organize their classmates, neighbors, and friends into powerful teams that fight to end gun violence.
Whether you start a chapter or join a national team, we’re here to support you with coaching, training, and a community of leaders every step of the way.
Gun Violence is a Symptom of 5 Forces
March For Our Lives is a movement dedicated to ending all forms of gun violence — not just mass shootings but everyday gun violence, police violence and more. We fight for a world where no person has to face this tragic and preventable end.
Our mission calls for something more bold and transformative than gun control alone. We call for a world that is re-imagined: a world where oppressive power structures are abandoned, and community is embraced. A world where all human needs are met and the love of people is centered.
We believe that gun violence is a symptom of 5 forces:
Mental Health Crisis
Gun safety laws by themselves will not stop this crisis. Gun safety alone cannot disrupt this cycle of death. We can’t solely legislate gun violence away. Instead, we must work toward making gun violence obsolete by preventing it from happening in the first place.
Campus Hubs & Chapters
Campus Hubs & Chapters are local teams developing their campaigns and strategies to build a world free from gun violence. They work on campus or in a city/neighborhood.
Starting a Campus Hub or a Chapter is a big commitment. MFOL is committed to training, coaching, and supporting new and existing chapter leads every step of the way.
National Teams support the movement through various campaigns. National Team members can organize online and don’t need to be part of a local chapter.
Do you have an idea for a campaign? Excited about our new member “Welcome Team”? We’ll get you set up!
Who can start an MFOL Chapter, Campus Hub, or team?
Every MFOL Chapter/Campus Hub/and Team looks very different, and while we don’t place specific limitations across-the-board for who can or can’t organize with us, we want to find the best way for you to organize with us. For example, a Campus Hub at a specific school should consist of students at that school, while a city-wide chapter could consist of community members across various neighborhoods. Welcome Team members can help you find existing chapters that might be nearby, information on current National Teams and their campaigns, or even walk you through the process of starting your own. Fill out the form above, and a member of our Welcome Team can discuss the various ways you can organize with us!
