Photo gallery: Grand County residents join hundreds of thousands gathering in Denver for March for Our Lives

Tyler Tomasello / Special to Sky-Hi News

In the mist of the nationwide debate on gun reform, hundreds of thousands of people of all ages and lifestyles converged on Civic Center Park in Denver on Saturday to take part in the March for Our Lives, including several Grand County students and residents.

The main event in Washington, D.C., was conceived by student survivors of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., after the unfortunate events last month, where 34 people were shot and 17 of those lost their lives.

Inspired by the event happening at the nation’s capital, teenage organizers took it upon themselves to start their own marches in their cities to spread their message to politicians and organizations with hopes of changing current gun regulations.
