The March For Our Lives was spearheaded by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida after the deadliest school mass shooting in U.S. history took place there on Valentine's Day. The massacre, which officials said was carried out by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, left 17 people dead, including 14 students and three faculty members.
Historians said the demonstrations were shaping up to be one of the largest youth protests in decades.
“Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students,” the mission statement for March For Our Lives reads in part. “We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.”
