Students and supporters across the United States joined March for Our Lives rallies in Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and across the country on March 24, 2018 -- weeks after a gunman killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The mass protest was organized by teen survivors of the Douglas shooting.
