WACO, Texas - It's time to take a stand against gun violence in schools.
Waco is holding its own March for our Lives event on March 24, as many will be marching in Washington on this day to bring awareness to gun violence in schools and gun safety.
The march will happen at Heritage Square, near 3rd Street and Washington Avenue, and will start at 3:00 p.m.
Students, teachers and religious leaders will all be taking part and are inviting the community to join.
Organizers say, "We stand with students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that have become all too familiar."
