Saturday March for School Safety

Inspired by similar events called for in cities and towns around the country, a gathering to protest gun violence in schools will be held at the windmill at Long Wharf in Sag Harbor on Saturday at 11 a.m. Short speeches will precede a march on Main Street to the Civil War monument and back. Sinead Murray, a Pierson High School senior, is among the organizers.

A March for Safe Schools will take place at noon in Southampton Village, from Town Hall to Agawam Park. 

Buses will depart from the South Fork early in the morning on Saturday for Washington, D.C., where a march is expected to draw a half million protesters. Among those going is a contingent from East Hampton High School, where an anti-gun violence walkout was held on March 14. East Hampton Town Councilwoman Kathee Burke-Gonzalez has said that she will join the high school group.

Another march will begin at 10 a.m. that day at 72nd Street and Central Park West in Manhattan. Organizers have asked participants to wear orange, a color that has been adopted as a symbol of the movement.
