One year ago, young people changed the conversation around gun violence with the largest youth demonstration since the the 1960s.

To commemorate this special anniversary, March For Our Lives DC has partnered with dozens of national and grassroots organizations from across the nation in order to collect handwritten constituent letters in support of S42 (universal background checks).
