PHOTOS: March for Our Lives Across the Country

Slide 1 / 7

Across the country and in cities around the world, hundreds of thousands of teachers, parents, students, and activists are participating in the March for Our Lives, an anti-gun violence rally organized by student survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people.

The central march is taking place in Washington DC, but as was the case with the January 2017 Women’s March, thousands of demonstrators are participating in local marches from New York City to Orlando, Florida, to Los Angeles, and as far away as Berlin. For many of the young people taking part in the estimated 800 March for Our Lives that are currently underway from coast to coast, the event is about much more than just the Parkland shooting — as they've told us, it’s about feeling safe and being heard.
