Thousands protest gun violence in the March for Our Lives rally

Christopher Columbus Park was flooded with protestors demanding action against gun violence on June 11. The rally was organized by March for Our Lives, a youth-led organization that advocates for gun reform. The protest in Boston was one of the March for Our Lives protests held in response to the May 14 shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York and the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
