On Saturday, students across the U.S. will be filling the streets for the “March for Our Lives” protest, hoping to urge lawmakers to pass legislation that cuts down on gun violence and makes schools safer.

Three local high school students involved in Portland’s march joined Your Voice, Your Vote this week to discuss what they hope to accomplish.

“Almost every single movement in history has been led by young people and we're the ones who are trying to continue this tradition and heritage and augment it to make sure we have key concrete policy change,” said Tyler White, a senior at De La Salle North Catholic High School.

March for Our Lives - Portland is set to begin about 10 a.m. in Portland’s North Park Blocks before a march to Pioneer Courthouse Square.
