March for Our Lives: Best Signs from the Rally

Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas who survived the Parkland, Florida, shooting in February are leading hundreds of thousands in the March For Our Lives demonstration Saturday in Washington, D.C. Sibling marches are additionally scheduled to occur in various cities across the United States.

The protest is being held in an effort to spread awareness to gun violence and push for stricter gun laws while honoring the 17 people killed in the Parkland shooting. As Americans nationwide are rallying to take part in this movement, the signs made by attendees prove to be an eye-grabbing aspect to an event of this caliber.

To ready people for Saturday's march, many city-led March For Our Lives demonstrations held sign-making events. Many of the signs feature bold statements and statistics, among other relevant aspects. For those who couldn't attend Saturday's demonstration or are interested in seeing signs made for marches being held in other U.S. cities, take a look at some of the best sign to surface from the protest below:

The Washington, D.C. area planned out Saturday's demonstration weeks in advance. Student's who survived Tuesday's Great Mills High School shooting in the neighboring state of Maryland is also expected to march alongside Parkland survivors.

Some of the Great Mills survivors have shared how the demonstration has become personal to them. "I'll be completely honest, I had no idea it was even happening," Brooke Obney, a 17-year-old student, told BuzzFeed News. "I didn't know March for Our Lives was a thing until it applied directly to me."

Singers Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus are scheduled to perform at the Washington, D.C. protest. Broadway stars Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt released a charitable song in honor of March For Our Lives earlier this week, and they're confirmed to perform it together Saturday as well.

Stars like Amy Schumer, Olivia Wilde, Yara Shahidi, Connie Britton and Jimmy Fallon are among a list of celebrities expected to attend the rally at one of its various locations around the country. George and Amal Clooney, who made a $500,000 donation to the cause ahead of their attendance in the nation's capital, said they "are 100% behind" the Parkland student's initiative.

Several Parkland survivors are scheduled to speak.
