In response to the Valentine's Day mass shooting that claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Vanderbilt student (and MSD High graduate) Abigail Brafman has organized March For Our Lives Nashville -- a sister march to the one that will be taking place Saturday in Washington D.C.
The music city march begins at 9am in Public Square Park, and will feature speeches from Brafman and other gun-safety advocates. The event will also include a 1-mile trek through downtown, voter registration, food trucks and even activities for children.
If you're in need of transportation to and from the march, Lyft has actually pledged to provide free rides to people who RSVP.
Follow these steps to reserve yours:
-RSVP to the rally at www.marchforourlives.com/events
-Ride codes will be distributed Friday to those who RSVP
**For those who don't RSVP, ride codes will be available at www.lyft.com/MFOL Saturday morning. Once you have a code, enter it in the ‘promos’ tab of the Lyft app.
**Note: March For Our Lives will take place regardless of the weather. So even if it's looking gloomy, you can still show up if you're passionate about the cause!
