Tens of thousands of people are expected to rally in Washington, D.C. and other cities across the country for the March for Our Lives.

Survivors of the Parkland school shooting spearheaded the march. Two students from Stoneman Douglas High School were in Los Angeles Friday to speak about what they are going through.

They want to send a message: they're demanding changes in gun laws and safer schools.
