On March 24, a national March for Our Lives event is happening, with the major march occurring in Washington D.C. at 10 a.m. Eastern and sister marches taking place around the country on the same day. This is not the same as the National School Walkout Day from March 14, where students and staff around the country walked out of class and observed a moment of silence for 17 minutes. The March 24 event is taking place on a Saturday and won’t be disrupting school or encouraging students to walk out of their classrooms. Here’s everything you need to know about the March, when it’s taking place, and how to find one near you. Most of these events are seeking gun control, but they’re not seeking to reverse the Second Amendment or outlaw guns altogether. Interestingly, not every group rallying today is rallying for gun control. One group in New Jersey is hosting a “Protect Our Children” rally, seeking armed protection in their schools.
Below is a list of March for Our Lives locations around the country. If you can’t find a location near you, just visit the March for Our Lives website and enter your City and ZIP code. So far, a total of 820 events are scheduled worldwide. Here is a list of major cities around the country that are hosting March for Our Lives rallies. This list is from a variety of sources, including local websites, Wikipedia, and more. These are in alphabetical order by state. Each event’s time is the city’s local time, and each event is on March 24 unless otherwise indicated. If your state isn’t listed, just look on the March for Our Lives website, which will likely have even more events listed in the coming days.
