March for Our Lives, March 24, 2018

Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in over 800 locations across the country to protest and press for changes in gun laws. Thousands of signs were made and waved by protestors and marchers, imploring those in power to hear them out. Estimates from the Washington D.C. march have attendance numbers ranging from 200,000 to 800,000; major cities across the United States have reported protest numbers ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands.

The March for Our Lives organizers have one goal in mind: to vote out representatives that don’t align with the ideals of March for Our Lives and the #NeverAgain movement, and to create lasting change in gun control laws.

Those for gun control came out in droves to express their opinions. However, there are many who stand against the movement, stating that the protesters were asking the government to take away American rights.

Teen Ink wants to hear from you. Did you participate in the national march or any local march? Did your school have a walk-out protest on the 14th? If so, did you participate? Why? What are your intentions and goals for attending these marches and protests? Do you believe that your generation can make a meaningful change in national policies? Do you agree with the goals of the March for Our Lives movement?
