Tampa Students Organize Local ‘March For Our Lives’

TAMPA – Students from high schools across Tampa Bay joined together to organize a ‘March for our Lives’ event in Tampa. More than 13,000 people convened at Kiley Gardens before marching over a mile throughout downtown.

On March 24, hundreds of marches took place across the country, calling for reformed gun control. The marches take place a little over a month after 17 people were killed in a school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The march in downtown Tampa was just one of over 800 sister marches that took place across the country. The event began with a rally held in Kiley Gardens, through which students performed speeches, spoken word, and songs.

Following the one-hour rally, organizers led the crowd in a march throughout downtown, re-convening at Kiley Gardens afterward to gather.
