Teens march for their lives in downtown Cleveland

Cleveland March For Your Lives

Cleveland - Thousands of people, young and old, have converged on downtown Cleveland for the March for Our Lives.

The event began around 11:30AM with a rally on Public Square, followed by a march.

It's one of about 800 such events being held around the nation on Saturday, including a march in Washington, D.C. sponsored by the students from a Florida high school where 17 students were murdered in a school shooting.

It's not just teens doing the marching;  our Ken Robinson spoke with some older folks who came to support the young people in their calls to make schools safe and to end gun violence in our country.

Saturday's marches come ten days after students honored the Florida victims and in some cases called for gun-control changes during school walkouts across the country.
