"We demand our lawmakers do more to end this gun violence crisis in our city and our country. We deserve to live in a country where children live free from gun violence, in their schools, in their homes, and in their communities," the organizations said in a news release.
Thousands are expected to gather at Federal Plaza, 219 S. Dearborn, for a 1 p.m. rally before marching to Daley Plaza, 50 W. Washington, for a moment of reflection for lives lost. Then at 2 p.m. the march will head east on Randolph to Trump Tower.
A brief program at Federal Plaza will include a call to action for gun reform. Speaker lineup includes: Jason Saini, Initiated Facebook event for the March; Brenna O'Brien, Chicago Lead, Moms Demand Action; Jaquie Algee, Women's March Chicago and SEIU; Jen Diamantos, Science Teacher, Illinois Education Association; and Lauren Tucker, Indivisible Chicago.
Social media hashtags for the event are: #GunReformNow, #March4GunReform, #ThrowThemOut
