Yonkers students to participate in March For Our Lives

- As 500,000 people protest in Washington during the March For Our Lives, several big-name celebrities will be hitting the stage to perform for the demonstrators.

A Pensacola woman is among the multitudes planning to attend.

But some people in the Triad are taking their voices even farther, all the way to D.C. According to the March for Our Lives website, there will also be official marches in a number of countries, from Italy to India and Ghana. The recent shooting shook her deeply, and what ensued challenged all that she knew from living in a state with lax gun laws, she said.

People interested in joining the marches are asked to register early.

The Parkland school shooting was the third mass shooting to take place in the U.S. in five months, following attacks in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs, Texas. "Where you would go, where we would have to sit, and they had to create this new protocol because of this new threat". She said there's a special type of spirit in the air.

"These kids aren't saying 'Lets just take everybody's guns away, '" says Coy.

You can also donate to notable, established organizations that are working to regulate gun control. She wants action, even though she's aware complete safety can not be guaranteed.

"What we have done, too, is have additional school security on campus", said officer Christopher Hawkins said. While gun control advocates have a broad-ranging agenda, most have focused on pushing for comprehensive gun reform legislation that they say would prevent mass shootings. "In the tragic wake of the 17 lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns".

The $1.3 trillion measure incorporates all twelve annual Appropriations bills for Fiscal Year 2018 (i.e., current year). Leahy said. "We wanted to include DACA and include them in this bill...[but] the Democrats would not do it".

On February 14, 2018, a gunman walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

"Parkland was more of a call to action for me".

For Bailey, Washington's side includes the Marysville Pilchuck High School shooting in 2014, where four students and the student gunman died.

With these young student activists leading the way and gaining momentum, Laatsch is hopeful. I like that our generation is getting involved. "Should you come across anyone who is trying to disrupt the event for any reason, please do not engage them".

"We as older people need to support these young people".

While Laatsch and her daughter will be in Washington, D.C., her husband and son will be participating here at home.

The March for Our Lives is expected to set off from Central Park West and 72 Street at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 24.
