Caruso, 21, said she is attending the march to build a network that can help statewide efforts in Nevada to tackle various issues in the gun violence debate.

"This movement is not to choose sides on politics or infringe on a person's Second Amendment right", said Khalsa, a 15-year-old South Eugene High student, on Friday.

"If this happened in a place of a lower socioeconomic status or. a black community, no matter how well those people spoke, I don't think the media would cover it the same", Hogg added. We will not stop until change is made.

"We want all voices heard", Robinson said.

Dr. David Helsel, the superintendent of Blue Mountain School District, explained his schools' new gun control measure, ABC affiliate WNEP reported Friday.

"On March 24th, students, parents, teachers, and concerned citizens will join together to remember those who have been murdered by senseless gun violence", the Facebook event reads. "Ladies and gentlemen, this can be done". Hogg said he spent time this week at a high school in Washington, and spoke with others who had been affected by gun violence.

"We're an affluent community ― that's why initially everybody followed this [shooting] so closely", Kasky, 17, said during the Twitter Q&A. "We bleed the same blood, and we all suffer the same". She locked students and coworkers in a back room. Later, they discovered the "horrible, terrible things that happened", she said.

"If today was like any other Thursday, I'd be back in the library helping students, helping them learn", Haneski said.

Emiya Fanaeiau is also pushing for an end to gun violence.

Eastmond also recalled the day of the shooting: "No student should have to cover themselves with a deceased classmate to survive".

Mary Catherine Roberson, a Danville mom of three, is participating in the march as part of Moms Demand Action, a national organization that aims to work toward gun sense in America.

The survivors of the Florida shooting "have created a movement that is going to shift the conversation on gun violence", Gonzalez said.
