Let's Support March For Our Lives!

High School students across the nation have organized the March for Our Lives in response to the Feb. 14 mass murder of children at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Please click on this link to read the mission statement.

The Liberal Ladies of Blanco County have organized a rally to support the March for our Lives. It takes place on Saturday, March 24 from noon to 2 pm on the corner of Pecan and 4th Streets in Blanco.

The Liberal Ladies state the following: We are doing this in order to advocate for the end to gun violence in schools. This will be a peaceful, somber and non-confrontational public statement.

You are welcome to bring signs. The Liberal Ladies ask that signs read, "We stand with the March for Our Lives" or "Stop School Shootings."

If you're planning to attend the Blanco County Democratic Convention, also on March 24 beginning at 10:30 am at the Gem of the Hills in Blanco, we will join the rally upon conclusion of the convention.

​We recently lost a loved and cherished friend, Erin Watson. 

                 She was a co-founder of the Blanco County Activist group The Liberal                        Ladies and a loyal Democrat. She will be greatly missed.

If you would like to make a donation in her honor, the Blanco County Democratic Party will work with her family to use these funds in a manner that honors her life and her work.
