Photos: Thousands attend March for Our Lives in Tucson

More than 3,000 people, including students, teachers and parents, attended the March for Our Lives in Tucson, assembling in Downtown to walk two miles to the University of Arizona, demonstrating against gun violence.

The national event was spearheaded by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who have become leading figures in a movement to strengthen gun regulations following a school shooting that killed 17 of their fellow students.

In Washington D.C., an estimated 800,000 people demonstrated at the March for Our Lives event, and thousands more attended sibling marches in New York, one of dozens of demonstrations across the country.

In Arizona, there were 15 scheduled events, including marches in Tucson, Phoenix, and Flagstaff, as well as Bisbee, Prescott, Nogales, Sahuarita, Sierra Vista and Yuma.
