Fallon encourages viewers to take part in March for Our Lives

Late-nigh host Jimmy Fallon encouraged “anyone who wants change” to head to Washington, D.C., to participate in Saturday’s anti-gun violence rally. 

Fallon at the beginning of Tuesday’s “The Tonight Show” reminded viewers he will be attending the March for Our Lives rally, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

The rally is to “tell the government, loud and clear, that we demand change on the issue of gun control,” Fallon said. 


 The march is being organized by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students who survived the mass shooting there on Feb. 14. 

"I’ll be there, with my family, to support  the students," Fallon said. "And I encourage all of you — families, students, teachers, anyone who wants change — head to Washington this Saturday, or find a local march happening in your city, and show your support for these kids as they make their voices heard. Our future is speaking, and we should listen."

Fallon vowed last month to march with Parkland students after the tragedy, saying that he was inspired by their “guts, passion, conviction and common sense.” 

He is one of many celebrities expected to join protesters at the event, including Oprah Winfrey, Amal and George Clooney, Steven Spielberg, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Hudson and much of the cast of “Modern Family.”  

Washington is preparing for as many as 500,000 people to take to the streets Saturday to push for gun control laws.
