WASHINGTON — Thousands of students marched down Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington D.C. Saturday at the March for Our Lives to demand an end to gun violence in America's schools.
At the center of it were students and parents from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who were marching 17 students and faculty killed with an assault rifle at a mass shooting in February.
"We feel the love from everyone, it doesn’t matter what color what religion, your age,” said Tracy Hibshman, who has two children who go to Marjory Stoneman Douglas, and wore a Stoneman Douglas shirt. “Everyone is joining forces.”
Cheers and chants rang through the crowd while people of all ages held signs ranging from hopeful to angry — many calling on lawmakers to make policy changes. Here's a look at the signs students brought to Washington:
