On Saturday, people from all over the country will be marching in Washington, DC to demand change in our country’s gun control laws. Entitled the March For Our Lives, the movement is a result of the tragic shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Earlier this week, students and teachers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School traveled to DC for the march. Friday morning, Ted Leonsis and the Washington Wizards invited them to practice at Capital One Arena.
While there, the students and teachers got the chance to chat with members of the Wizards team like John Wall, Kelly Oubre, Tim Frazier, Bradley Beal, and coach Scott Brooks.
They also chatted with Wizards and Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, who showed support to their cause.

Here are few photos the owner and the Wizards shared on Twitter.
In late Feburary, the Capitals were the first team to play the Florida Panthers at home after the shooting happened. The Panthers honored the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an emotional pregame ceremony and an incredible speech from Parkland resident Roberto Luongo. The Capitals also got in on the action to help the students when Alex Ovechkin contributed two items to their silent auction including an autographed puck signed with #MSDSTRONG.
