The event is part of the students group’s March For Our Lives: Road to Change Tour. The event will be at Roosevelt Park at 500 Spruce St., SE Albuquerque.

The group is making is way across the country, stopping at several locations to “get young people educated, registered, and motivated to vote,” according to the tour’s website.

“When people across the country rallied at the March For Our Lives just over 2 months ago, we showed our politicians that we refuse to accept gun violence as an unsolvable issue. Now it’s time to turn our energy into action,” according to the website.
