The movement was sparked by the recent Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, which claimed the lives of 17 people. It was one of the deadliest school massacres in modern history.

The event was organized by students and the nonprofit organization Everytown for Gun Safety. They are hoping this will lead to stricter gun control.

The D.C. function inspired cities around the country to host rallies of their own. From Los Angeles to New York City, countless people stood in solidarity.
