Across the world, students took to the streets to demand gun reform in America and to show solidarity with those schools that have suffered attacks.

The main march took place in Washington D.C., but 846 satellite marches worldwide gave students a local opportunity to have their voices heard. In the New York area, there were marches in Manhattan, Coney Island, Staten Island, Hoboken, Jersey City, Newark, and across Long Island and north of the city.
