Massive Anti Gun Violence Demonstration Planned in District


March for Our Lives, the student-led movement that promotes gun control reform, is preparing for a major rally in Washington DC on Saturday, June 11. 

The DC demonstration will be part of nationwide protests organized in response to the recent mass shooting that claimed 21 lives, including 19 children, at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Activists are planning to march along New York Avenue in Northwest DC, after gathering near the Washington Monument. 

The first March for Our Lives event took place following the 2018 school shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a 19-year-old murdered 17 people and injured 17 others. 

“We aim to create safe and healthy communities and livelihoods where gun violence is obsolete,” the group says in its mission statement.
