By the end of the first week of March 2018 there’d already been at least 14 school shootings reported in the United States…this year alone.
As students across the nation continue to find creative ways to rally for the cause of gun law reform and/or control, celebrities are using their platforms to shine a spotlight on the cause. Come March 24, the country is set to see one of its biggest gun control rallies yet via the highly anticipated ‘March for Our Lives’ in Washington, D.C.
Organized by student survivors of the horrific high school shooting in Parkland, Florida last month, reports have it now they will be joined by four of Pop music’s biggest voices: Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, and Demi Lovato.
Taking to CNN last week, David Hogg – student survivor of the high school attack in Parkland, Florida – announced:
“We’re gonna have four major independent women that are standing with us and walking beside us,” Hogg told CNN. “They’re gonna be standing there with us and marching with us and they’re just some of the few people that are really coming out and stepping up with us.”
In addition to the aforementioned, reports have it Jimmy Fallon, Chelsea Handler, Jimmy Kimmel, George and Amal Clooney, and more will be on hand to lend their support. Previously, ‘March for Our Lives’ has received notable donations from major names such as Oprah Winfrey and others.
