Tens of thousands of protesters are gathering in Washington, D.C., for a rally advocating for stricter gun control. Organizers of the "March for Our Lives" rally are hoping to draw 500,000 protesters to the nation's capital on Saturday. The organizers' website says more than 800 "March for Our Lives" events are planned around the world.

The event in Washington began at 12 p.m ET. CBS News is live streaming the event in Washington, and is covering events at other locations.

The protesters, many of them high school students, claim that the youth leadership of this initiative is what will set it apart from previous attempts to enact stronger gun-control legislation.
