Student survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting announced a “March for Our Lives” this morning calling for lawmakers to take substantive action on guns.
Emma Gonzalez, the student who gave an impassioned speech yesterday, told CNN’s Dana Bash, “We’re going to be facing this with trepidation and determination, and we have an incredible support system around us. We are going to be the difference.”
Cameron Kasky said right into the camera, “We are losing our lives while the adults are playing around.” He said on March 24th, students “in every single major city” will be marching to send a message about how lives are literally on the line.
Organizers of the Women’s March have called for a “national school walkout” on March 14th.
