March For Our Lives will take place on March 24 as the fight for more gun control continues. On the one-month anniversary of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, students including juniors Alexis Lucy Ishkhanian and Bella Feinstein joined a 17-minute walkout on March 14 to push for gun control.

 

Students worldwide have organized marches on March 24 for more restrictive gun legislation after a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, left 17 dead.

The main March For Our Lives event will take place in Washington D.C. on Saturday with more than 800 sibling marches planned elsewhere around the world. In Los Angeles, the march begins at 9 a.m. at 603 S Spring St, Los Angeles, 90014. Several notable pop culture icons are scheduled to speak at the Los Angeles march, including Rita Ora, Olivia Wilde and Amy Schumer.

This march is the latest in a series of political actions led by the students of Stoneman Douglas High School to try and influence gun control legislation. The march’s aim is to eliminate school shootings by protesting for more restrictive and comprehensive gun legislation.

On March 14, the month-anniversary of the Parkland shooting, students nationwide walked out of school to mourn the victims of the Florida shooting and express their concerns about gun laws.
