Utahns to participate in 'March For Our Lives' event

On Saturday, activists in Washington, D.C. and across the country will hold "March for Our Lives" rallies to protest gun violence.

Avalon Hoek Spaans, a science graduate student at Columbia and campus organizer for the march, is from Florida.

Earlier Friday at Tampa International Airport, more than a dozen students boarded a plane bound for D.C.

"They don't know what it's like to be 20 feet from an AR-15", Parkland survivor Alfonso Calderon, 16, told students at a Washington charter school this week, referring to United States lawmakers. "Parkland is the heart of this movement, and therefore the march here will be the most symbolic of them all". Also, she has a view from the inside, as a volunteer in the library at N.B. Cook Elementary School. "We are undergoing something transformational in this nation".

"These kids aren't saying 'Lets just take everybody's guns away, '" says Coy. The events were planned in collaboration with larger gun reform organizations like Everytown for Gun Safety.

It's empowerment now she and others want to turn into political power later.

"It's definitely a blessing that we're all coming together and that we're all fighting through and we're making changes", he said.

"We're students fighting for the rights of all Americans to not get shot, for Christ's sake".

"People truly do fear", says Kuperman, a student at Emery High School. But now recently, there has been so many shootings that I am a little bit nervous.

For Bailey, Washington's side includes the Marysville Pilchuck High School shooting in 2014, where four students and the student gunman died. "I really do believe that if you're not going to actively fight for a solution to the violence, and you're not going to actively fight to keep us safe - then you are part of the problem", said Patafie. So people know what kind of message we're trying to put out and what we want.

Cindy Sherman is a speech language pathologist who lives in northwest Washington, D.C. and is a mother of four.

One will be in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where 20 years ago Saturday two boys, 11 and 13, ambushed fellow students and teachers in a yard after setting off a fire alarm at Westside Middle School, killing five people.
