This weekend all eyes were on the National Mall as hundreds of thousands of people attended the March For Our Lives. At the march two local students spoke out against gun violence, and prior to the march students and local lawmakers highlighted gun violence in D.C. at the Rally for D.C. Lives. City Paper’s arts editor Matt Cohen was at both of these events and he joins the podcast to discuss pro-gun control activism. But first, students who have been researching gun violence for a project with the nonprofit Mikva Challenge share their thoughts and feelings about gun violence in D.C. and the nation as a whole.
