03.24.18 • Hundreds of Students, Community Leaders, Educators and Government Officials gathered in protest at Tropical Park in Miami, Florida to participate in a rally for the March For Our Lives Movement.
There was a wide array of emotion during the event about the shootings that have occurred in the last year, and all over the world; such as the school massacre in Parkland, Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. These groups say the worldwide rallies and marches were arranged because not everyone can stand up to change in D.C. but everyone can come together to stand up for gun control and heal as a collective.
One of the speakers, a South Florida high school student; Joy Marie read a heartfelt speech to an overwhelming crowd gathered in support of their message to end this epidemic of mass shootings.
