Demi Lovato is heading to Washington, DC next week to help shine a light on the issue of gun violence…
The 25-year-old part-Mexican American singer/actress will join survivors of the February 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, as they take to the streets of Washington to protest gun violence.
On March 24, survivors will be joined by Lovato, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson as they call for gun legislation reform.
One of the survivors, David Hogg, made the announcement for March for Our Lives during an appearance on CNN.
“We’re gonna have four major independent women that are standing with us and walking beside us,” Hogg said.
According to the March for Our Lives mission statement, organizers will “demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before (the U.S.) Congress to address these gun issues.”
The shooting at Stoneman Douglas High claimed the lives of 17 people.
Lovato invited survivors onstage during the opening show of her tour in San Diego.
Other celebrities, including Jimmy Fallon and George Clooney, are set to attend as well.
The march will occur 10 days after a national student walkout, which was met with similar support by celebrities including Katy Perry and Zendaya.
Sister marches will take place in cities across the nation.
