Cast members from the television show “Parks and Recreation” marched together against gun violence on Saturday. 

Actor Natalie Morales posted the photo on Twitter, writing #ParksForParkland in honor of the survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting last month.  

The photo includes actors Aubrey Plaza, Paul Rudd, Morales, Adam Scott and Billy Eichner.

Many members of the cast have been outspoken advocates for gun control. 

When the National Rifle Association (NRA) used a gif from the show to celebrate its spokeswoman, the cast tore into her on Twitter. 

“Our good-hearted show and especially our Leslie Knope represent the opposite of your pro-slaughter agenda – take it down and also please eat shit,” Nick Offerman, who played Ron Swanson on the show, tweeted in response.

Main character Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, met with real-life politicians including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on the show.

Producer Michael Schur also hit the NRA on Twitter after their “Parks and Recreation” tweet, and even shared a message from Poehler.
