All Around The Country, Young People March For Our Lives

03.24.18

On Saturday, March 24th, students and allies from across the United States are gathering in Washington D.C. — and in communities across the country — with one message: #Enough.

Led by a group of teen survivors from the massacre last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the movement has gone from student protests to a national desire to stem ongoing gun violence.

#MarchForOurLivesDC organizers say they expect up to 500,000 activists to march in the nation’s capital. That doesn’t count the throngs of protesters who will participate in the hundreds of satellite events around the country.

As we did for the walkouts earlier this month, Youth Radio has student correspondents across the country reporting from numerous marches, plus a student team in D.C., providing exclusive student-led coverage of this student-led movement.

Follow our student-led coverage live on @youthradio Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and come back here for highlights. This page will be updated throughout the day.
