Nia Cultural Center's Freedom School will participate in the Children's Defense Fund's National Day of Social Action at 1:15 p.m. Wednesday at Alamo Elementary School, 5200 Ave. N1/2, in Galveston.

"Protect Children, Not Guns" is this year's theme. 

Children and community members also will conduct a march with images of school buses to reflect the thousands of children and teenagers who lose their lives to gun violence each year in America.
