Yesterday, millions marched in Washington D.C and all over the world in what was potentially the largest single-day demonstration in recorded U.S. history. March For Our Lives was organised by Florida high school students who lost 17 of their friends and classmates to a gunman just last month.
Joining the protest were celebrities such as George and Amal Clooney (who previously donated $500,000 to the cause), Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern.
Below, the best celebrity sightings of the day.
So proud and inspired by the youth of our country! Proud to see them using their voices to make a real change! As a nation we spend trillions of dollars fighting wars overseas, yet, sadly, we cannot protect our own children here at home! Today a change will be made! Their voices will be heard! Welcome to the revolution ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
No one should have to go to school in fear of gun violence. Or to a nightclub. Or to a concert. Or to a movie theater. Or to their place of worship. I’ve made a donation to show my support for the students, for the March For Our Lives campaign, for everyone affected by these tragedies, and to support gun reform. I’m so moved by the Parkland High School students, faculty, by all families and friends of victims who have spoken out, trying to prevent this from happening again.
Today I March for the students of Parkland and everywhere and I March for Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson. We need to digitize gun-sales records, mandate universal background checks, close gun-show loopholes and straw-man purchases, ban high-capacity magazines, and push for a comprehensive assault weapons ban with an extensive buyback system. Thank you Emma Gonzalez!. #notonemore #marchforourlives
What an amazing day yesterday to take my daughter to Washington DC to see our future leaders speak. Having my daughter march along-side her grandfather and parents was a day I hope she remembers forever. I know that the younger generation will vote to change these gun laws that so desperately need to be changed. Hearing these stories yesterday and meeting so many families affected by gun violence was heart breaking and I hope when it comes time to vote we all step up and vote to protect our children.
