Today's Photo of the Day sees young victims of gun violence, including students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, stand together on stage at the conclusion of the March for Our Lives rally on 24 March 2018 in Washington, DC.

March for Our Lives is a student-led demonstration with over 800 sibling events throughout America and around the world. According to data from Getty Images, more than 830 demonstrations took place in the past weekend to address school safety and gun violence.

Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators, including students, teachers and parents gathered in Washington for the anti-gun violence rally organized by survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School school shooting on 14 February 2018 that left 17 dead.

With two million marching across the United States, it was the largest student protest in American history, one of the largest marches on Washington in history, and the second largest march in American history, with millions more estimated to have marched throughout the world.
