On March 24, numerous ‘March for Our Lives’ rallies took place across the U.S. in a nationwide call for gun control. Among the people showing out to support, various artists including Kanye West, Vic Mensa, and Common were also spotted in attendance at the inaugural event in Washington, D.C.
Recent events such as the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, served as the catalyst for the marches. Students from the school worked in collaboration with nonprofit organization Everytown For Gun Safety to organize the demonstrations and ignite U.S. citizens’ interest in gun legislation.
As mentioned, Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian West were spotted at the D.C. rally with daughter North. The reality TV star took to Twitter to share a picture of West and the 4-year-old embracing, writing the caption: “I hope North remembers this forever.” Other notable appearances in D.C. include a heartfelt performance by Vic Mensa, Common, and Andra Day.
In New York, Paul McCartney marched alongside the masses wearing a “We Can End Gun Violence” T-shirt. His former Beatles bandmate, John Lennon was fatally shot back in December 1980.
In Los Angeles, the likes of Jaden Smith, Hailey Baldwin, and Kendall Jenner were also seen standing among the crowds, while many other celebrities vocalized their support online.
