At the March For Our Lives on March 24, hundreds of thousands of people flooded Washington, D.C., and satellite marches across the country to protest gun violence — a public health crisis that claims an average of 96 lives every day. As young people shared their stories of loss, grief, and survival, the nation listened.

Now it’s Congress’s turn. We’re calling on our lawmakers to listen to these advocates, support gun violence prevention research, and take informed action to protect our communities. Everyone deserves to lead a life that is healthy and free from violence.

Here are some highlights from the day’s events.

Keep Fighting

Each day that Congress fails to act, another community experiences the tragedy of gun violence. Whether gun violence is in the form of mass shootings, intimate partner violence, or overzealous and brutal policing, we cannot afford to be silent. That’s why we need you to take the energy from the March For Our Lives into the days, weeks, and months ahead.

Show UP!

Another national action addressing the need for gun violence prevention is taking place next month. The #NationalSchoolWalkout on Friday, April 20, 2018, will join students, educators, parents, and community leaders together to take action.
