Students, Parents, And Teachers Head To D.C. For "March For Our Lives"

Local students, teachers and parents are making the trek from South Florida to Washington D.C. for this weekend’s "March for Our Lives" – a demonstration ignited by the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Some of those heading to the nation’s capital for Saturday’s rally left early Thursday morning from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport with a solid purpose.

Students from Douglas and other schools across the area have been vocal in their push for laws they say would prevent certain people from purchasing high capacity assault rifles.

Events are scheduled for Saturday across the country – including many events taking place in South Florida, such as Parkland and Miami Beach.

The rallies come days after the school was rattled by the story of three students being arrested – two for having knives on campus and a third for making an online threat – while a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy being suspended after it was revealed he was asleep in his vehicle on campus.
