March for Our Lives

We’re taking to the streets to show our support for the students of our community and to demand gun control legislation. The March will start and end in front of the Historic Courthouse in downtown Riverside. Those who wish to march with DGR please meet us in front of the entrance to the Justice Center (new-ish courthouse, right next to the old one) at 9:45am. We will also be registering voters and pre-registering 16 and 17- year olds; if you would like to volunteer please leave a comment.

For further information go to:

All attendees are encouraged to RSVP on Eventbrite so we can get an accurate count of how many people went. The Press-Enterprise undercounted the numbers at the Inland Empire Women’s March so it’s really important to sign up.

Lastly, if you’d like to help defray the cost of permits and such please go to

IE Resistance Presents: Sign-Making Workshop for March for Our Lives

Let’s get ready to march! Inland Empire Resistance invited us to join them this Tuesday to make signs in the Parish Hall of the Universalist Unitarian Church in downtown Riverside.

Pizza and water will be provided; please bring anything else you’d like to eat or drink (no alcohol please). Markers and stencils will be available, as well as a limited supply of poster board.

The Church collects dry and canned goods for Arlington Temporary Assistance so please bring an item to donate if you’re able to.

Almost all public parking downtown is free as of 6pm.

Please RSVP by noon on the 20th so there will be enough pizza for everyone.
