    March for Our Lives Event in Bay Area

    Several marches are planned for Saturday March 24, 2018, throughout the Bay Area for the March for Our Lives for gun reform. (Published Friday, March 23, 2018)

    Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to participate in the nation-wide March For Our Lives event, demanding the federal government take immediate action to pass gun safety laws.

    On Saturday, people all over the country will take to the streets to have their voices heard. According to the campaign website, “March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar.”

    The campaign comes a couple of months after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida where 17 lives were lost.

    “In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns,” the website read. “March For Our Lives believes the time is now.”

    Though the main march will take place in Washington D.C., many other cities in the nation are doing their part, with more than 838 events confirmed on their website, including Bay Area cities.
