Dozens gather to protest gun violence on Parkland school shooting anniversary

Community

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Dozens gathered at the Utah State Capitol for to protest gun violence Saturday.

Two years ago Friday, 17 young people were shot to death in a violent attack at Stoneman Douglas High school in Parkland Florida.

Since then, young people both there and across the county have banded together in the March For Our Lives Movement against the “looming threat of gun violence across America”

On Saturday, the group gathered to have their voices heard.

The event began at 1 p.m. on Saturday and showcased guests from area schools and others against gun violence in the community.

Correction: We incorrectly report this as the 2nd annual March For Our Lives. That is incorrect. The event was a rally held by the March For Our Lives organization with no marching required. Also, if it were a march, it would have been the 3rd annual.
