They also urge students, parents, school officials, lawmakers and others to participate in local anti-gun violence marches on the day of the nationwide movement.
Seventeen people were killed in last month's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, prompting a national conversation about gun laws, fierce advocacy for stronger gun control from surviving students and, initially, a move from Trump to buck his allies at the National Rifle Association. "We outnumber them by almost one million and may be the largest cohort of future American spenders since the baby boomers".
Democrats and gun control advocates were quick to pounce, with Sen.
"This isn't about being aligned with one political party or another", they write.

One bill to be proposed by Trump is known as the STOP School Violence Act which would authorize $50 million a year on school-safety improvements, including violence-prevention training for teachers and students, the Wall Street Journal reported. "Clearly, the NRA was more persuasive than I was".
Those efforts have apparently paid off: after the Parkland shooting, Trump, who claimed that the NRA has "less power over [him]" than it does over Congress, stated that he would like to see age limits raised for long gun purchases, something supported by both gun owners and gun control activists alike.
"On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting", he tweeted. "Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly)". The polling firm found that 67 percent of Americans support raising the minimum age for gun purchases, while only 26 percent oppose.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the NRA spent $3.2m in lobbying in 2016, a little over $1m in campaign contributions to Republican candidates, and over $54m in "outside spending", which is money spent "against candidates" who do not favour gun ownership rights.
