Thousands gather for 'March for Our Lives' in Birmingham
Thousands gathered at Railroad Park in Birmingham, Saturday afternoon to participate in the nationwide 'March for Our Lives.' rally.
Birmingham's rendition was one of eight being held across the state on Saturday. Those who came out for the event called for gun control and more safety in schools.
"I felt compelled to come out here," Allen Armer said. "I wanted to contribute to change the society and make it a better, fairer, more equitable, decent society."
People from all walks of life marched through the streets of Birmingham in attempts of letting their voices be heard.
"This is how change starts," Leah Dupre said. "This is how it really starts. It doesn't just start by one man up in Washington or a group of people up in Washington. It starts with the people's voice-- what they need heard and say what this country needs and what they need to feel safe and feel secure and to be a better nation than what we are."
