The hashtag is encouraging students to join a March 24 gathering in Washington to demand gun control legislation.
The survivors of last week's deadly school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, are determined to honor the lives of the 17 victims in the massacre by doing something. Specifically, they are calling for fellow students and their families to join them for a mass march on Washington, DC, on March 24 to demand action on gun control called March For Our Lives.
“People keep asking us, 'What about the Stoneman Douglas shooting is going to be different, because this has happened before and change hasn't come?'” Cameron Kasky, an 11th-grader at the school told ABC News. “This is it... People are saying that it’s not time to talk about gun control. And we can respect that. Here’s a time. March 24th in every single city. We are going to be marching together as students begging for our lives.”
