Collier County Democrats will be hosting a Collier County high schools-led rally on March 24th in coordination with the planned national “March 4 Our Lives” event in Washington, D.C. and other cities around the country. This march is being planned by students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida in the wake of the mass shooting there that claimed 17 lives. Marjory Stoneman Douglas students are demanding action on gun reform.
Student organizers said they are determined to use protests and political action to make the shooting a turning point in the national debate over gun reform.
“Any politician on either side who is taking money from the NRA is responsible for events like this,” Cameron Kasky, an 11th-grader, told ABC News. “At the end of the day, the NRA is fostering and promoting this gun culture.”
