March for Our Lives marks anniversary in Washington, D.C., with call for continued efforts to curb gun violence

A year after the March for Our Lives attracted 200,000 people to Washington, D.C., activists are back in the Capitol continuing to push for efforts to restrict access to firearms.

Tuesday’s effort from the movement, which resulted from the Feb. 14, 2018, massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, involved a pop-up gun violence prevention art installation on the lawn of the Capitol.

“A Week in America” commemorates the 735 people killed by gun violence each week, including 105 children, said Matt Deitsch, a Stoneman Douglas graduate who is a co-founder and chief strategist of March for Our lives.
