READ: Student protests hope to influence American politicians to enforce gun law reforms

The “March for our Lives” was organized to lobby against the gun violence and mass shootings. Organised by students, this is the second attempt made by students to gain the attention of lawmakers to enforce policy change in gun laws. The first rally was held all around the United States to commemorate the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School a month after it occurred on February 14th, 2018.  The rally held on the 24th of March saw over 850,000 people join the cause, as they marched lining the streets towards the National Mall.

Students also gathered in various states across America including Hawaii and Alaska. The movement hopes to encourage voter registration to equip more civilians to have more influence over policymaking.
