Following the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida last month, the student survivors have worked tirelessly to get a mass gun control movement off the ground. And they've managed to do just that.
On Saturday, March 24, the March for Our Lives is set to kick off in Washington, DC, with thousands of people expected to descend on the nation's capital in support of stricter gun laws, and an end to gun violence and mass shootings. There are also some 700 other satellite marches scheduled to take place this weekend across the country, including major events planned in New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Many expect it to be the largest single-day protest since the Women's March in January.
