March for Our Lives Atlanta: How the march unfolded on social media

Social media timelines are flooded with images and videos of the “March for Our Lives” rallies in cities across the country, including here in Atlanta.

Parkland survivors sparked the “March for Our Lives” demonstrations against gun violence after 17 people were killed in the Feb. 14 school shooting. 

An estimated 30,000 people attended the Atlanta rally and speakers included Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, civil rights leader Sen. John Lewis and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students.

"I hid in a closet Feb. 14. and I'm not hiding anymore,” shooting survivor Carly Newell said during the Atlanta rally. “I'm not hiding from my government, not hiding from the NRA, not hiding from guns. And most of all I am not hiding from change."
