On Saturday, thousands of young people are expected to march on Washington, D.C., and in cities across the country in support of gun control. The March For Our Lives was organized by the survivors of last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Students across the country have been outspoken since the shooting, staging a nationwide walkout last week. Will this, their largest demonstration yet, sway elected officials to act?
