Nearly 2,000 people so far have signed up to attend a local "March for Our Lives" demonstration on March 24 at the state capitol to demand action on gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Florida.

Student survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting are organizing the national march in Washington, D.C that same day. They urged cities across the country to join in as well.

Emily Stone, 17, is the organizer of the Sacramento march.

"I actually had a friend posting she wanted to attend one of the marches, and I told her, 'Well, someone will create one,'" Stone told ABC10, "And then I decided I could be the person that starts it this time."

Stone said she was inspired by the students speaking out in Florida and the youth movement they've started.

"I think it's just really encouraging to see people from my generation really stepping up, because this is our generation and we want to make it better for future generations as well," she said.

Although the focus of the march is on gun safety and control, Stone said she doesn't want the event to be partisan.

"Most of us, whatever political party you are, you have children, you send them to school and want them to be safe," she said. "So, it's less of a political issue and more of something we need to be united on."

The event is planned for the afternoon of March 24 at the state capitol in Sacramento. More details can be found on Facebook and Eventbrite.
