On Sunday, March 21st, students, teachers, workers and other members of the Napa community cametogether to raise awareness about cuts to education.The marchers rallied on he sidewalk of Soscol Ave for about an hour, where protesters waved signs and chanted slogans such as "What do we want? Education!--When do we want it? Now!" about an hour.

Video footage of this rally shows the different ages and demographics of the protesters. It was definitely something that left it's mark in Napa. A march this size, going through downtown Napa is not very common.

The march was one of the articles on the front page of the Napa Valley Register.
