Las Vegas students to 'March for our Lives'

Parkland survivors attend March for Our Lives despite shooting injuries

Calderon and other Marjory Stoneman Douglas survivors attended a #NeverAgain - as their movement is known - rally this week at Washington's Thurgood Marshall Academy, where two students were killed in separate neighborhood shootings during the past year.

Cart said this was a different way for people to use their skill sets to make a positive contribution to their community in response to recent violence across the country, most notably the February 14 high school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people. Caleb Casey, organizer and Har-Ber High School senior, said they plan to walk about 10 minutes west and stand along South Thompson Street holding signs for drivers to see.

"To me, it feels like this is THE moment when it's all going to change", said Anne Tumlinson, who will be hosting about a half dozen high school demonstrators from Jacksonville in her Washington home.

According to the press release, speakers will include MSD students that survived the shootings, as well as those who met with local and national lawmakers.

"I don't really want teachers with guns at schools", Aden Fiol, Strawberry Crest HS student, said.

She said "we're students".

Fall Out Boy and rapper G-Eazy are set to headline a concert Friday night in Washington, DC, that will benefit gun violence prevention groups ahead of the march.

Organizer Heather Adams said she expects the event to bring out close to 600 people.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected in the capital for the rally and march.




At a federal level, modest gun control measures were included in the $1.3 trillion spending package passed by Congress this week.

"It's surreal, I didn't think it would happen", said Lindsey.

Even so, Ho-Shing said she never felt like her words could inspire real change until now.

How are San Diegans getting involved?

One student was wounded and another later died from her wounds after being shot Tuesday in southern Maryland; the 17-year old gunman was also killed.

So far, more than 2,000 people have expressed interest through its Facebook page. I think it's a tragedy for both our country and on a human level.

"I have no political background".

"I want stricter gun reform". "We are the age of people that don't vote normally".

Nationwide, the march begins at noon Saturday.

Things were different when UCF student Lauren Schwartz returned to her hometown last week for spring break.
