Lots of companies and brands have come out in support of gun control and its advocates in the wake of the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida last month, and Lyft is the latest to pony up some real money to help support the cause. The ride-hailing app has pledged to give out free rides to attendees of March For Our Lives rallies around the country this weekend

If you're planning to attend one of the many, many official March for Our Lives ralliestaking placearoundthe country on Saturday, Lyft is trying to hook you up with a free and easy way to get there. It's distributing codes that'll cover rides up to $15 in 50 U.S. cities.

Here's how it works: On Friday, Lyft will begin distributing free ride codes to those who've RSVP'd to one of the official March for Out Lives events on this page. If you aren't able to RSVP by Friday, the remaining ride codes will be available on the Lyft website beginning Saturday morning. To redeem one, you simply enter it in the "promos" tab on the app. For it to be applied you'll also need to enter a march "rallypoint" as your destination (though you'll find more details about where those are in your area once you enter the code).

It's also worth noting that Lyft has agreed to pledge $1.5 million in free rides, so once it's given out that much you're out of luck. Here's the full list of cities where free ride codes will be available.
