The movement was triggered by the recent Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, that claimed the lives of 17 people. It was one of the deadliest school massacres in modern history.
The event was organized by the students and the nonprofit organization Everytown for Gun Safety. They have the hope that this will lead to stricter gun control.
The DC function inspired in cities across the country hosted rallies of their own. From Los Angeles to New York City, a number of people were mobilized in solidarity.
Those who could not attend the various events took their support to the means of social communication. From DJ Khaled Snoop Dogg, the Hip-Hop community represented.
Take a look at some of the tweets below.
