Scenes from Los Angeles’ ‘March for Our Lives’

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of people around the country demonstrated to reduce gun violence and strengthen gun control laws. The march, called “March for Our Lives,” was organized in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

“The Parkland school could have been our school, and people need to start taking gun violence seriously. And we are here to make a change,” said Samantha Mahon who marched in Los Angeles.

In Los Angeles, thousands marched through Downtown streets in protest.

Speaking at the march in Washington, D.C, Los Angeles student Edna Chavez said gun violence was a part of her childhood.

Photos from the march showed crowds holding signs to protest gun violence and remember victims.
