The march is planned for six weeks after the shooting that left 17 people dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Students at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda are organizing a network of roughly 200 host families for out-of-town peers coming to the area for the march.
