Students Lead the Way as 15,000 March for Our Lives in Phoenix

Fifteen thousand students and their supporters from all over Arizona rallied on Saturday, March 24, at the State Capitol, joining their peers in a nationwide event to demand their lawmakers take action on guns. Following the lead of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting survivors, Phoenix high schoolers organized a March for Our Lives protest to demand an end to gun violence, as did their contemporaries in dozens of cities around the country. The marchers were confronted by a small group of gun supporters holding NRA, Trump, and Don't Tread On Me flags.  Words were exchanged but there were no arrests.
