This Saturday, March 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., St. Louis Public Radio will air “The March for Our Lives,” a special national broadcast and call-in event hosted by WNYC’s Brian Lehrer.
"The March for Our Lives" is a march in Washington, D.C. and a national day of civic action on gun violence and school safety. It is a day that has resonance in every community, with over 550 scheduled local events. A march will take place in St. Louis.
The broadcast will focus on the national event but will be a gathering of voices from around the country, weaving parents, students, educators and concerned citizens into the fabric of the day.
America is experiencing a national conversation that goes far beyond the boundaries of “the gun debate.” This conversation is punctuated by new voices, shifting perspectives and unprecedented mobilization efforts.
You can listen to live coverage on 90.7 KWMU, 90.3 WQUB Quincy, 88.5 KMST Rolla and 96.3 KSMT Lebanon. Or listen on your phone with the St. Louis Public Radio or NPR One apps or online at stlpublicradio.org.
The broadcast of “The March for Our Lives” will pre-empt “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me” and “Ask Me Another,” which return next Saturday at their regular times.
