March for Our Lives demonstrations across the country brought out scores of stars, who offered their talent, support and praise for the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who are calling for Congress to enact stricter gun-control laws in response to the string of campus shootings.
Here are just a few of the celebrities who joined in the spirit of the event:
I stand with the brave, indomitable kids who galvanized a nation, a world, &did not take inaction as an answer. You have put the “adults” in DC to shame. CS gun laws with finally be enacted, &you will be the Heroes of a generation. TODAY you lead us all. #MarchForOurLives

I’ll always stand for open dialogue and action – it’s the only way to ensure bad history doesn’t repeat itself. When it comes to protecting our children, all bets are off and the responsibility lies with us adults and lawmakers to listen and do. Very proud of our youth leading this movement. I’d like to see these powerful one way marches, lead to powerful and smart two way conversations. Very strong day. #MarchForOurLives

Today our nation's youth are demanding their basic human right to go to school without dying in the name of greed. It's time for Congress to act like adults worthy of their office. PASS TOUGHER GUN LAWS! BAN THE AR-15! STOP TAKING NRA BLOOD MONEY! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! #neveragain pic.twitter.com/Hhg0Qltnjr

Hey @GOP, you are being replaced. Not only in November 2018, but by an entire generation who will not stand for your corrupt subservience to special interests like the gun lobby. Get on board with change or get out of the way. The future is here.#MarchForOurLives pic.twitter.com/iabhTbVKVY

This is how my loving mom is celebrating her 84th birthday today. #marchforourlives #notonemore. If our elected officials don’t act to prevent gun violence, we will #throwthemout. Make sure you’re ready to show up at the polls in November. Text FIGHT to 788-683 pic.twitter.com/zc5jEgdysY

Out marching with the kids and families. And thinking. 60 years ago schoolchildren were trained to get under their desks and hide from the Russians. Now we're training them again to hide. And this time from Americans. Something's wrong here. My heart and hopes are with the kids. pic.twitter.com/bmKxWOrEER

You are wrong, Chris Mathews, this #MarchForOurLives is not just about keeping our SCHOOLS safe from gun violence. It is about keeping our COMMUNITIES safe from gun violence.

George Bernard Shaw said, “Youth is wasted on the young.” He should have met these inspirational young people. They’re not wasting anything. https://t.co/haJlWoKEcu
