The Thursday night “Vote For Our Lives” rally was held at Clement Park in Littleton, just across the street from Columbine High School.
There were many parallels drawn between the 1999 Colorado shooting and the February shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Students and advocates across the state took to the streets for the March For Our Lives.
D.C. march organizers say more than 800 “sibling” events will take place all over the world, including in Colorado.
A dozen high schoolers gave speeches, shared personal stories or performed. The student organizers also arranged for Democratic state Sen. Andy Kerr to say a few words.
Students stood, hushed, for 17 minutes as balloons were released into a clear blue sky overhead.
The coordinated protest was meant to mark one month since the deadly shooting in Florida.
