On Saturday, March 24, 2018 more than 1,500 people marched in downtown Prescott to join 837 events worldwide in the March for Our Lives.
The events were organized to bring awareness to changes in gun safety.
Prescott Indivisible, Yavapai Democrats, Democratic Women of Prescott and MadShirtz put the local rally together that gathered at the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza.
March for Our Lives (MFOL) came about after the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead and 17 wounded on Feb. 14. The MFOL website states this event is, “a call to the nation’s leaders to take action and pass legislation on gun safety in schools.”
