On March 24, students, educators, parents and supporters alike joined the March for Our Lives movement all across the country to demand stricter gun control legislation in order to prevent gun violence.

“I went because I believe in the safety of my peers and teachers,” sophomore Kayla Mountain said. “I feel like we have to raise awareness so that mass shootings come to an end.”

Many Baldwin High School students spent their Saturday morning in Lawrence taking a stand for what they believe in.

“I just think more kids my age should become politically active so the rules don’t only benefit old white men,” senior Cameron Elphick said.

The March opened with speeches from various speakers before protesters began the walk from South Park down Massachusetts Street.

“I went to show that students care about gun control and gun sense and safety in our schools,” junior Ella Mozier said.

March for Our Lives was sparked by the Parkland Shooting at a Florida high school that took place a month prior to the protest.

“I think this will show schools that we really have opinions about this and we care about our safety and the safety of our peers,” senior Grace Cooper said. “We are people they have to listen to because it involves us too.”
