The call has reverberated throughout the country. More than 700 satellite marches have been organized in support of the cause -- including one in New York City.
“After the DC march was announced, I created a Facebook group for an NYC extension of the movement and everything sort of coalesced around that,” Alex Clavering, the 26-year-old student organizer of New York’s March for Our Lives tells Thrillist. “Normally, social media feels like a way for people to avoid taking real action. But within 24 hours we had 1,500 attendees. All of a sudden, I was planning something gigantic.”
Here is everything you need to know to take action and join the movement on March 24 in NYC.
