Maryland students headed to DC for anti-gun violence march

More than 4,000 people on social media indicated interest in San Jose's march and rally, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.at City Hall and to proceed down Santa Clara Street for a rally at the Arena Green on W. St. John Street, organizer Hiwad Haider said. "It should have been enough a long time ago, enough for people to start doing this amount of stuff. And while I sympathize with numerous mass shootings that have happened at school, this is something that happens to our young people every day", Nadine said.

March For Our Lives will help gauge whether students can sustain the momentum of their movement and push lawmakers to act. Levy's mother, Nadine Sylvester, and sister, Kyla Robotham, are keeping his legacy alive by leading the calls to end gun violence.

Organizers in Indianapolis will host a rally to protest school violence at the statehouse this weekend, and it coincides with a national march in Washington D.C. surrounding the same issue. ACLU of Utah says they will have 15 legal observers on site, their largest deployment in several years. There they'll rally outside at the Bell Tower, concluding the march at 1 p.m.

Great Mills students and alumni said they planned to travel the roughly 60 miles to Washington decked in green and gold, representing a community that's felt the pain of a school shooting firsthand. In fact, as members of their communities marched for the victims of the Parkland shooting last month, four people were shot in Brownsville and East New York, including a one-year-old child. The march in D.C. officially gets underway at noon.

Such a conviction is shared by 16-year-old Garcia, who told Crux that's it's for that very reason that he turned to his pastor for support.

"There are a lot of kids right now who are scared to go to school", Shaffer, 18, said. "Our youth-led movement can't just end with the walkout, it has to continue on, and this is the ideal opportunity for me to keep the momentum going".

Dorantes said that many of his parishioners are immigrant families from Mexico and Central America who have lived their lives in fear and in the shadows - but he believes the events of recent weeks have emboldened them.

Some students in Baltimore said they don't feel the need to take their concerns to Washington.

"He was just walking home, and it really touched me because he was a life".

"We want all voices heard", Robinson said.
