Dozens of student leaders and their supporters gathered at LeBauer Park in downtown Greensboro on Wednesday, August 1 for a March For Our Lives rally.

The national March For Our Lives organization made a stop in Greensboro as part of its “Road to Change” campaign to rally for gun control legislation. The Road To Change tour is a countrywide tour where the National March For Our Lives group travels across the nation to participate in rallies advocating for stricter gun laws and regulations.

March For Our Lives is the student-led organization first assembled on March 24, 2018, in response to the school shooting on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) High School in Parkland, Fla. The fatal attack took the lives of 17 students and school staff members. March For Our Lives leaders say the mission and focus is to assure that no special interest group or political agenda takes precedence over the timely passage of legislation to effectively address gun violence issues across the country.
