In 2018, out of tragedy, March For Our Lives (often colloquially referred to as M4OL, MFOL, or simply March) was born. Survivors of the Parkland shooting went on to organize the single largest protest against gun violence in history with a historic march on Washington, D.C. in 2018, joined by 800 sibling marches around the world. We turned a moment into a movement with 300 local chapters dedicated to eradicating gun violence in all forms.
