LSU students are advocating against gun violence with a new addition to campus– March for Our Lives Baton Rouge.

Students Devin Woodson and Mia LeJeune began planning to add the chapter to the university in February when they met the founders of the March for Our Lives national organization at a conference. 

March for Our Lives has over 100 chapters throughout the United States that are led by students who are trying to make a change in the legislature’s gun laws.

This is the third chapter founded in Louisiana, and focuses on engaging the youth in gun violence prevention in a non-partisan way.

The group engages with the community by encouraging people to vote, holding candlelight vigils to honor those who have lost their lives from guns, and hosting table sits to talk to people about their cause.

Students can find out more information about joining March for Our Lives by visiting their social media pages @mfolbatonrouge on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
