Washington, D.C., police approved the permit for the "March for Our Lives" rally to push for gun control legislation on March 24.
The demonstration was organized by survivors of the Valentine’s Day shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 dead and 17 others injured.
Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun control nonprofit founded in 2014, is also helping coordinating the event.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department told the Washington Examiner a press release with a list of closures “is forthcoming.”
The event will be in downtown Washington beginning at 12 p.m. According to the official website, it will take place on Pennsylvania Avenue between 3rd Street NW and 12th Street NW, with the possibility of a main stage being set up closer to the U.S. Capitol.
“On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. March with us in Washington DC or march in your own community. On March 24, the collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard,” the event’s website reads.
On the official Facebook page for the Washington event, more than 37,000 people have said they are attending, with another 93,000 more interested.
There are organized events worldwide — 727, according to the March for Our Lives website — including in Paris, Tel Aviv, London, San Francisco and Philadelphia.
