The Auburn Area Democratic Club salutes Pat Ferguson, AADC and Indivisible Auburn member, for organizing March for Our Lives. This event took place on June 11, 2022, on the steps of the Auburn Courthouse. It attracted many demonstrators, a large percentage of them students who were there to demand stronger gun safety laws from our federal representatives to protect them from violence during their school years. This event was the only event of its kind in Placer County, and regionally as well.
The event was widely advertised and attracted many attendees from outside of our area. Approximately 150 demonstrators were present. ABC Sacramento News 10 reported on the event over the course of three days, spreading their important message throughout the larger area. AADC thanks Pat Ferguson for amplifying our student population’s message regionally, that such gun violence must stop. And it is our government representative’s responsibility to legislatively protect our children against gun violence, NOW!
