Women’s March Fundraises Off Of Parkland Shooting

Amber Randall | Civil Rights Reporter

The Women’s March sent out a fundraising email Friday seemingly using the Parkland shooting to raise more money for their election project.

Women’s March activist Tamika D. Mallory called on people to donate money to the organization’s “Power to the Polls,” a project aimed at electing more women and progressive candidates  to “transform communities,” saying that if people did so it could lead to better gun control policies.

“The United States Government is failing to keep us safe via strong, sensible gun legislation. In the coming months, Power to the Polls, our national voter registration tour, will make its way through swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, and harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values,” Mallory said. “Then, together, we will vote out the politicians who have chosen to ignore the demands of the vast majority of Americans who support stronger gun control and other policies that keep our communities safe.”

The email includes a link where people can donate either a one-time or monthly donation.

Nikolas Cruz, a former student at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, opened fire Wednesday, killing 17 and wounding 14 others.
