Chattanooga's March for Our Lives organizer: 'This is an anti-gun violence and pro-peace march'

Amid mass shootings two weekends in a row in Chattanooga, a local anti-gun violence advocate is asking for more sensible gun laws.

Shiloh McCulley, one of the organizers of March for Our Lives - Chattanooga, stressed that the purpose of the march is to protest the violence stemming from the improper use of guns.

"This is an anti-gun violence and pro-peace march," McCulley told the Chattanooga Times Free Press in an interview. "We're very bipartisan with this."

The march is set for noon to 2 p.m. Saturday. It will begin at Miller Park, go down Market Street, turn onto Fifth Avenue, then down Georgia Street and back to Miller Park.

The event will feature Tennessee state Rep. Yusuf Hakeem; writer, editor and candidate for the Tennessee House Allison Gorman; civil rights activist Marie Mott; Democrat congressional candidate Meg Gorman; and speaker Blake Kitterman.
