Students and activists from Brooklyn, New York united on #NationalWalkoutDay to send a powerful message about the need for gun control reform.

A number of them told us what lawmakers are getting wrong about gun control, what would actually make them feel safer, and sent words of encouragement to their peers at Stomeman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

March for Our Lives will take place March 24 in Washington, D.C. and around the country. Visit here for more information.
