Our Southampton Town March for Our Lives Rally 2022.

Elected officials Fred Thiele, Bridget Fleming, Jay Schneiderman, John Bouvier and Tommy John Schiavoni spoke, as well as a number of amazing students and our march organizer, friend, and Committee member John Leonard.
Thank you John Leonard for organizing the event in conjunction with the Southampton Town Democratic Committee. Please see John’s remarks from the rally HERE, in which there’s a great deal of useful information, including suggestions on supporting Bridget Fleming and how to work for other Democratic candidates in swing states around the country.
Lisa Finn (Patch Southampton): “Their voices breaking, three Southampton High School students spoke candidly about what it has been like, to grow up in a time when active shooter drills are the norm and teenage fears include worrying if you’ll be gunned down during a day of classes.”
One speaker, Mary, suggested that we should all consider disinvesting from companies that support gun manufacturers and their enablers. “People invest their savings in firearm manufacturers and retailers raking in billions in handgun, assault rifle and ammunition sales. Most don’t even know it. We don’t need to profit from violence when we’re investing in our retirement accounts.” Here are three links to learn more: Gun Free Funds,  Weapon Free Funds, and  How to Find Gun Stocks in Your Fund Portfolios
