5:00 PM Community Divided/Humanity United Since the tragedies at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, students and survivors have turned their rage and sorrow into activism by organizing one of the largest youth-led movements in global history: March For Our Lives.

The Parkland students work together with other young leaders from across the country to advocate against gun violence, hold politicians accountable and combat the normalization of gun violence.

March For Our lives brings survivors of the Parkland shooting to San Diego to share its founders' New York Times bestselling book, "Glimmer of Hope," which details the foundational story of March For Our Lives and the students behind it.

NPR journalist Aubri Juhasz, declares that "'Glimmer of Hope' provides a blueprint for launching social change."

The event will host Parkland shooting survivors and March For Our Lives activists Sofie Whitney and Brendan Duff.

San Diego is just one of the many stops on their tour across America, which aims to educate young people, connect survivors and encourage voter registration.

Editor's Note: This kind of event is not normally posted to the Participant Observer, however, an exception was made because the Worldview Project will be staffing a table at the event and many of the mass shootings in schools, houses of worship and elsewhere are the result of xenophobic and racist intolerance and extremism.

Admission/Cost: FREE but Registration is required.

7:30 PM Performance: Paper Cities Paper Cities is a 60 minute multi-disciplinary performance narrated through puppetry, animated and original film, soundscapes, music and manipulated objects. It questions the logic by which humans have interpreted the idea of the city. It engages the previous century's history of urban development, transmogrifying commerce and politics into poetry, prosthetics and paper. It explores colonialism and how this has led to the exploitation of natural resources. Questioning the very act of puppetry as a performative medium, Paper Cities explores what stories are being told and asks who is manipulating whom.

Performed with puppets, animated objects, original film, and live soundscapes by Kristopher Apple. Directed by Liam Clancy.

Compulsively watchable and endlessly inventive." Gabe Greene- Director of New Play Development, La Jolla Playhouse
