After 17 students and staff died following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, young people in Parkland and elsewhere have been urging for gun reform laws — culminating in a “March for Our Lives” rally in Washington, DC on Saturday.
It has become a global movement, with more than 800 events held in cities worldwide, including locations in Europe, South America and Asia. Nearly a dozen will be held in South Florida alone.
The South Florida News Service is covering the marches here and in the nation’s capital. Mobilizing MSD Alumni provided eight seats on a bus headed to Washington, DC Friday morning. The overnight ride arrives in the nation’s capital at about 5 a.m. Saturday, in time for the noon start of the rally. The bus returns to South Florida at 11 p.m. that same day, returning to Coral Springs at about 3 p.m. Sunday.
In addition, nearly a dozen editors and reporters will be following the events in South Florida, from Kendall to West Palm Beach. To see our continuous coverage, follow us on Twitter and hashtag #MarchWithFIU for the latest updates.
