March For Our Lives
WASHINGTON — Hundreds of thousands from across the country converged along Pennsylvania Avenue for the March for Our Lives, a unified call for action promoting gun legislation inspired by survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting. The Feb. 14 mass shooting took the lives of 17 teens and adults.
While the parents, students, teachers and friends had their specific reasons for attending the march, they all appeared to have a shared purpose: provoking changes in gun laws and encouraging new voters to get politically engaged.
