The Feb 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has led to increased calls for gun legislation reform. On March 24, survivors will take to the streets of Washington to protest gun violence, enlisting the help of singers Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson and Demi Lovato to take a stand with them.

One of the survivors, David Hogg, made the announcement for March for Our Lives during an appearance on CNN. "We're gonna have four major independent women that are standing with us and walking beside us,” Hogg said.

According to the March for Our Lives mission statement, organizers will "demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues." The shooting at Stoneman Douglas High claimed the lives of 17 people. 

Cyrus and Hudson have previously tweeted support for the survivors and their cause.

Lovato also invited survivors onstage during the opening show of her tour in San Diego. Other celebrities, including Jimmy Fallon and George Clooney, are set to attend as well.

The march will occur 10 days after a national student walkout, which was met with similar support by celebrities including Katy Perry and Zendaya. Sister marches will take place in cities across the nation.
