Thousands descended on Theis Park outside the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art during the March for Our Lives, Saturday, March 24.
Students from all over the metro area, along with parents, siblings and teachers, including several speakers from North Kansas City Schools' Winnetonka High School, raised their voices against gun violence.
Interpretive dance, a gun violence survivor, music and an array of speeches crossed the stage. Signs of all kinds floated above the sea of people and others with photos of gun violence victims and their names lined the sidewalks.
