1 Mission. 300 Chapters. Youth-led.

We’re March For Our Lives, the generation that will end gun violence in America. We started in Parkland, Florida and went on to organize the single largest protest in gun violence history with a historic march on Washington, D.C., joined by 800 sibling marches around the world. Since that day, we have crisscrossed the country, connecting with activists in every state along the way, and are now 300 chapters strong.

We’re youth-led. We fight against all forms of gun violence. And we’re not afraid to call B.S.

Join our team! We’re hiring!
