March For Our Lives

WASHINGTON — A crowd of an estimated 800,000 people marched along Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. today, cheering, “Gun problems are everyday problems.”

The marchers enveloped downtown Washington for the March for Our Lives, a call for action promoting gun legislation inspired by survivors of the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Florida. The mass shooting took the lives of 17 adolescents and adults. In interviews, parents, students, teachers and friends each voiced their own reasons for attending the march, but they all appeared to have a shared purpose: provoking change in gun laws and encouraging new voters.
