DENVER, CO — Send your March for Our Lives Denver photos to Jean.firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet to @jeanlotus
Students and adults in Denver, Colorado will join marchers in cities across the country as one of more than 800 March For Our Lives rallies, in support of the students killed Feb. 14 at Margory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
While Parkland students head to Washington DC, organizers in Denver have been working since February to set up the rally. Organizers say confronting the dangers from school shootings is an issue that most people can agree on.
"It’s not a Democrat or Republican issue," said organizer Tay Anderson, 19. "I’ve had Republicans reach out to me and tell me they support this," he said.
