The March For Our Lives rallies are underway across the U.S.  Hundreds of thousands of people are expressing their outrage after the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida.  

The main rally in Washington, DC  where 500-thousand people are estimated to be in attendance.  

Some of the most vocal student activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the latest shooting took place, will speak. 

The students are being joined by a number of celebrity performers, including Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato.  


Other rallies are taking place in cities from coast to coast including Amherst, Northampton, Springfield and Boston.
