Hundreds of thousands of students are expected to march on our nation’s capitol tomorrow as part of the March for Our Lives. The anti-gun violence rally was organized by students after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last month.

In Phoenix, Valley high school students have banded together to hold their own march — one of more than 700 events planned around the world. One of the organizers, Jacob Martinez, is a junior at Dobson High School in Mesa.
