SARTELL -- Community members from central Minnesota are gathering for a "sibling march" as a part of the March for Our Lives movement.

The Sartell march is one of hundreds happening around the country, planned by students and survivors of gun violence in several cities. The national day of action will center on calling for lawmakers to pass "common-sense" gun safety legislation.

The march will be at the Sartell City Hall, starting at 10:00 a.m.

Last week, students at several area high schools, including Sartell-St. Stephen and ROCORI, participated in a national walk-out, in support of the 17 victims of the Parkland, Florida school shooting on February 14th.
