With the March 24 March For Our Lives in the history books, students from around Colorado met at Columbine High School Monday to announce next steps in a movement to change gun laws.
The Vote For Our Lives campaign is part of a national push organized by survivors of the Parkland, Florida, high school mass shooting.

The campaign is designed to, "Educate voters about where their representatives stand on this life or death issue, and motivate the adults who have failed to keep us safe from guns, and make this issue the one that decides where they vote," said Emmy Adams, a senior at Golden High School.
The first Vote For Our Lives event will be held near Columbine next Thursday, one day before the 19th anniversary of the shooting that left 13 dead. Students from Parkland are expected to attend. Other cities will hold their own events, with a final event planned in Florida just before the midterm elections.
