Arms Around our Kids

On the morning of March 9th, 2018, PTAs throughout Pasadena Unified invite parents and community members to link arms around our kids' schools for 15 minutes at the start of the school day to say ENOUGH to gun violence. By linking our arms around our community’s schools while they are in session on Arms Around Our Kids day, participants signal to our students, teachers, school employees and the community that we are not going to let harm come to them, and we resolve to overcome partisan divisions and work together for solutions. Click here for a FLYER explaining this peaceful, non-partisan demonstration and the times it will take place at each PUSD school. (Early start time schools: 7:50-8:05 AM; late start-time schools: 8:45-9:00 AM)

Give Us Tomorrow (GU2M) is a grassroots effort started by parents and community members who want to address gun violence affecting children in our society. GU2M is in agreement with California PTA’s position on ending gun violence. CA-PTA has asked for “Callout” action on March 14.
