CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - More than half a million people are expected to march in Washington D.C. Saturday as students across the country take a stand following the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

There will be marches across the country, including right here in Northeast Ohio.

March for Our Lives is a demonstration created and organized by #NeverAgain, a group of students who survived the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Students said they want lawmakers to ban on assault-style rifles, restrict ammunition sales and make background checks more strict.
