The ride-hailing company Lyft has announced that will be providing free rides to students who are taking part in the March For Our Lives protest against gun violence that will be taking place later this month.
The march is part of a movement started by survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting that left 17 people dead last month.
“We want to send you a note of condolences, thanks, and solidarity,” Lyft’s co-founders wrote to students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The March For Our Lives will be held in Washington, D.C., on March 24, but other corresponding rallies will also be taking place across the country.
Lyft said it would be “honored to support your work with free Lyft rides” to any of the events.
March For Our Lives is “led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar,” its website says.
“We believe there is something seriously wrong when the threat of gun violence is so frequent and real throughout our country. And like many, we are inspired by your leadership,” Lyft said, praising the students for their efforts to “drive meaningful change” on the debate.
