Taking the gun control issue to the streets to affect change. That’s what the students of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School are doing on Saturday, March 24th at March For Our Lives in Washington, DC. Millions of their peers, families, kids and advocates will be joining them in cities and towns across the country and abroad in over 800 sister marches. Enough is Enough!
THE BIRTH OF A MOVEMENT
The March For Our Lives Movement is the product of the aftermath from the latest mass school shooting in the US in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 dead from Marjorie Stoneman High School.
The heroes of this movement are the surviving students of Marjorie Stoneman High School, who collectively and individually turned their grief, shock, anger and disgust into action and the birth of a movement.
March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. They demand social change.
“We can’t ignore the issues of gun control that this tragedy raises. And so, I’m asking – no demanding – we take action now.” — Cameron Kaskey, 17-year-old junior, Marjorie Stoneman High School
